The Elisabeth Walton Potter Oregon Heritage Preservation Scholarship provides financial assistance for Oregon residents to attend a preservation-related conference, workshop, or training in the United States. Eligible travel expenses include registration fees, transportation, lodging, and meals.

It is a competitive application process and scholarships will be offered to those actively involved in local preservation efforts and who demonstrate how attendance at a preservation-related conference, workshop, or training will help meet the preservation needs of their local community. Awards usually range from $500-$1,500, depending on applicant eligibility, priorities, criteria and the number of applicants. Applications that include some match are more competitive.

Scholarships are offered twice a year. The deadline for this round is Dec. 1 and is available for those to attend trainings between Jan. 1, 2018-June 30, 2018.

Some examples of relevant conferences and trainings that would be available for this scholarship occurring in the time period of this round include the following:

*         Main Street Now Conference

*         Association for Gravestone Studies Annual Conference

*         American Alliance of Museums Annual Meeting

*         National Council on Public History Annual Meeting

*         Society of Architectural Historians Marion Dean Ross/Pacific Northwest Chapter Conference (This year's conference is in Astoria!)

Please note that the application process for this scholarship has changed. We will not be asking applications to apply using the OPRD Online Grants System. You can find more information on the scholarship and how to apply by visiting http://www.oregon.gov/oprd/HCD/FINASST/Pages/Scholarships.aspx#EWPOH_Preservation_Scholarship.
