The Environmental Design Scholarship Committee is proud to announce the 2023-2024 winners of the ENVD Research Award. The ENVD Research Award financially assists with senior-level ENVD honors and capstone projects. Congratulations to ENVD students Ellie Muncy and Ainsley McElwee!  

Muncy, a sustainable planning and urban design major, is working to better understand, document and problem-solve equality in downtown Boulder, through the lens of women’s safety. McElwee, also a sustainable planning and urban design major, is revisiting Boulder and its historic districts to consider and present new opportunities in telling a comprehensive narrative that weaves both the historical past and the present day. Both Muncy’s and McElwee’s work, while focused and originating in Boulder, could have influence and impact beyond the city limits.
