Thompson Graduate Studies Scholarship

The Stanley Thompson Foundation will donate $2,500 per year for a five-year period beginning in 2013 for a scholarship awarded to a student in the Master of Landscape Architecture program, University of Guelph, who has a thesis in the area of golf course design.
The landscape architecture building is home to one of the country's finest programs. It includes an internationally acclaimed course in golf course architecture.

Inspire the Next Generation of Canadian Golf Course Architects

The appreciation of Canadian golf course architecture fosters a healthy respect for history and traditions while championing the works and genius of designers such as Stanley Thompson.
A successful design is as visually pleasing as it is playable. With golf being a form of outdoor recreation, the strong designer is an adept student of natural landscaping who understands the aesthetic cohesion of vegetation, water bodies, paths, grasses, stonework, and woodwork, among other elements.
The Stanley Thompson Foundation is dedicated to supporting and promoting programs in golf design in conjunction with the University of Guelph’s Landscape architecture program. Through the Foundation you can make a difference by giving back to the game you love.  
Thank you for your interest in the Stanley Thompson Foundation.
