North Dakota State University horticulture student Sarah Kickert was selected to receive a 2019 National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) Foundation scholarship. She will be awarded the Vito Mariani, Sr. Scholarship at a Foundation Scholarship Recognition Reception held in conjunction with NALP’s National Collegiate Landscape Competition at Colorado State University in March.

The NALP Foundation grants scholarships to students enrolled in landscape contracting and/or horticultural programs at two-year or four-year colleges and universities. Students must be an active member of their NALP Student Chapter to qualify for a scholarship.

Kickert is a senior from Shakopee, Minnesota, who will graduate in May 2019 in horticulture with a landscape architecture minor. She is advised by horticulture professor Todd West. During her time at NDSU, she has interned with companies specializing in landscape design, worked in the NDSU Woody Plant Improvement program, and held part-time jobs in a garden center and a floral department.

Kickert is a member of Kappa Delta Sorority and the NDSU Horticulture and Forestry Club. She has received several scholarships and academic awards. She also was selected to be a NALP Student Ambassador in 2018.

Following graduation, Kickert will begin a position as a design assistant with Southview Design, Minneapolis, Minnesota.
