The award commemorates the life and achievements of Fred Tschopp Senior, a Swiss-American certified landscape architect who pioneered modern, innovative landscape architecture in New Zealand during the years 1929-1932.

He is recognised in refereed publications as New Zealand's first modern practitioner.

The Fred Tschopp Senior Scholarship is a Fees Award given to an entry level student who satisfies the following criteria through the presentation of a portfolio and a two page written statement of your research proposal and the way that the research work will ‘honour the legacy of Fred Tschopp Snr.’. This will be presented to the Tschopp Scholarship panel.  (Or submitted via email)  
The successful student will be selected on the basis that their design portfolio and research statement demonstrates:

  1. The potential for their research to contribute new knowledge to the discipline of landscape architecture through design research
  2. The potential to make a challenging, exciting and significant difference to our world, cities and landscapes
  3. The potential to honour the legacy of Fred Tschopp Snr., as characterized by his creative and innovative expansion of the traditional boundaries of the Profession of Landscape Architecture as represented in his "Pioneering work in Rotorua".
