Building Prosperity in Rural Communities through Community and Economic Development and Design Experiential Learning in Kentucky

Grants and Contracts Details


Abstract: CEDIK proposes to enhance an existing innovative student experiential program offered in concert with the Department of Landscape Architecture and the College of Design. We propose providing 8 internship opportunities each summer to support rural community design and economic development efforts. CEDIK will rely on its existing partnership with the Kentucky Association of Economic Development and the Area Development Districts to place 4 interns each year in support of planning and economic development activities in rural Kentucky communities. In addition, 4 interns (through LA, Architecture, Historic Preservation and either Ag Econ, Retail Tourism and Management, or Interiors) will spend a summer in one rural place providing a comprehensive approach to downtown redevelopment. This is 4 year project.
