Entries Now Open for The Fred Roche Travel Award


We are very proud to be supporting The Fred Roche Travel Award, organised by Milton Keynes Community Foundation. The three £500 awards are to support students who are studying horticulture, landscape design, architecture, urban design or arboriculture to broaden their subject knowledge through travel during the summer break. The Travel Awards are sponsored by The Fred Roche Foundation, The Parks Trust and an anonymous donor.


Who can apply?
In order to apply, you must be between the ages of 18 and 23 on 1 June 2018 and have completed your secondary education in Milton Keynes. You should now be in full-time higher education studying horticulture, landscape design, architecture, urban design or arboriculture.


Growing Local Talent
The Fred Roche Foundation was created to keep the MK spirit of creative exploration, innovation and strength of vision alive, and to celebrate the life and achievements of Fred Roche who played such a seminal role in the creation of the City. Their aim is to stimulate creative discussion and debate around subjects that are critical to the character and vitality of Milton Keynes and to foster respect for the great urban development and achievement the New City represents. With this in mind, MK Community Foundation will ask that the successful applicants write a blog and/or vlog, describing their travels, so that their experiences can be shared with a wider audience and encourage more awareness of the importance of studying horticulture, landscape design, architecture, urban design or arboriculture.

Timeline
Applications will be reviewed by the MK Community Foundation panel and the winner will be announced on their website on Friday 1 June 2018.
