Applicants must be:

- entering junior or senior year in Fall 2022
- minimum GPA 3.3
To apply, please complete the online application form, including the following materials as a single .pdf document:
- A statement of purpose (500 words, 1 page) that speaks to two things:
- Your interest in SED itself: Why did you select the SED major and what do you plan to do after graduation?
- Your interest in the scholarship: How will it benefit you in reaching your academic and/or career/professional goals? Priority will be given to applications that are goal-oriented and goal-focused – you should have something specific that you intend to do with the award. Applicants should consider growth experiences that will help them achieve their academic/professional goals.
- Unofficial transcript (a PDF print from Cal Central is acceptable)
Please note: Federal financial aid regulations require that all awards received by a student cannot exceed their financial aid need as determined by a congressional formula. It is possible, therefore, that the cash award for a Prize could reduce some component of a needy student’s package of financial aid awards. In these cases, the Financial Aid Office attempts first to reduce loan or work aid; fellowships, grants or scholarships are only reduced as a last resort. Regardless of your financial aid situation, the IRS views fellowships, grants or scholarships that are not directly applied to tuition or other educational expenses as taxable income.
A creative and talented landscape designer, R. Dudley Trudgett (1908-1985), B.S. Landscape Architecture ’34, practiced in close association with architects and planners in California and abroad. His interest in the College and its future students reflected his concerns for both the natural and the built environments, and for an approach to theory and practice that transcended the boundaries among the separate design professions, cultures, and nations.
