NATIONAL TRUST OFFERS CONFERENCE SCHOLARSHIPS

 

The National Trust for Historic Preservation is now accepting Diversity Scholarship Program applications for the 2012 National Preservation Conference, Oct. 30 – Nov. 3, in Spokane, Washington. The application deadline is June 20.

 

The Trust seeks culturally diverse applicants whose attendance at the conference will benefit their communities and reinforce their commitment to historic preservation. Through interactive sessions, presentations, informal gatherings, and tours of the host city and surrounding areas, participants will learn the necessary tools to strengthen their commitment and effectiveness in preserving historic places and revitalizing communities. Diversity Scholars will also have the opportunity to present their preservation projects to the broader conference audience.

 

The Diversity Scholarship Award covers basic conference registration and accommodations for 4 nights. Visit www.preservationnation.org/resources/training/npc/diversity-scholarship-program for scholarship application or email scholarship@nthp.org .
