Lawrence Munroe Memorial Scholarships
A scholarship has been made available through an endowment established by Diana L. Belhouse (BA 1947, LLB 1973), to honour the memory of her husband, Lawrence R. Munroe, P.Eng. (BASc, Civil Engineering 1946). The award is available to outstanding students in the School of Community and Regional Planning who are Canadian citizens and who majored in or received an undergraduate degree in geography or civil engineering from the University of British Columbia or the University of Victoria.
Lawrence began his successful career in 1946 with the Vancouver Town Planning Commission until the creation of City of Vancouver Planning Department where he held the position of Associate Director of Planning, until his passing at 47 years of age in 1970. In honour of Lawrence's influence on the beautification of the City of Vancouver and lifetime work, preference will be given to students who have demonstrated an interest in urban design which focuses on the creation and retention of green space and enhances the beauty of cities or urban areas. The award is made on the recommendation of the School of Community and Regional Planning, in consultation with the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.
