New Burrows Endowed Graduate Fellowship in Planning and Public Policy established at EJB

June 18, 2014

The Bloustein School  is pleased to announce the establishment of the Dawne D. and Lawrence B. Burrows Endowed Graduate Fellowship in Planning and Public Policy.

Lawrence B. and Dawne D. Burrows are longstanding supporters of the Bloustein School who have taken the opportunity of the “Our Rutgers, Our Future” campaign to significantly increase their commitment to graduate education in planning and public policy at the school. Following their establishment of the Dawne and Lawrence Burrows Scholarship in Planning in 2011, for a three-year term,  Larry and Dawne have this year  established the Dawne D. and Lawrence B. Burrows Endowed Graduate Fellowship in Planning and Public Policy with a gift of $100,000 to the university.  Eligible candidates for the Burrows Fellowship will be full-time graduate students, active either professionally or academically in the fields of real estate development, property sales, public infrastructure or environmental and sustainable property development.  Candidates should be planning to pursue a career in consulting, planning, real estate development, or environmental management and should have a demonstrated interest in commercial application of “smart” growth and property development principles.

Larry graduated from Rutgers University (1974) with a B.A. in Urban Studies, and received a master’s degree in Urban Planning from the University of Pennsylvania (1976). He is a graduate of the Wharton School of Business Advanced Management Program (2000).  While at Rutgers, he worked for the Center for Urban Policy Research where he authored, Growth Management:  Issues, Techniques and Policy Implications.” 

Larry retired from the Weyerhaeuser Company in 2013.  From 2010-2013, he ran the Wood Product’s Division, the second largest wood products company in North America.  From 2008-2010, he was president and CEO of Weyerhaeuser Real Estate Company, a top 20 homebuilding company.  He preceded that assignment as president of Winchester Homes Inc., Weyerhaeuser’s homebuilding operation in the Washington, D.C. area.

Dawne continues to operate her consulting firm, which has for 20+ years provided market research consulting services to major corporations, healthcare firms and banks throughout the country.

Larry will also continue his service to the Bloustein School as a member of the dean’s Advisory Council from his new base of operations in Annapolis, near Baltimore, MD.
