The National Park Service's Historic Preservation Training Center and National Center for Preservation Technology and Training are sponsoring 20 student scholarships to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the International Preservation Trades Workshop! The scholarship will cover the registration fee for IPTW at Clermont Farms, Berryville, VA, Sept 9-11, 2016.
The National Park Service preserves thousands of historic buildings, structures and features, many of which were constructed using techniques that are no longer commonly taught to tradespeople. The Historic Preservation Training Center strives to provide knowledge and hands-on craft skills in the historic building trades. The National Center for Preservation Technology and Training conducts research and testing in it's own laboratories; provides cutting edge training around the US; and supports research and training projects at universities and non-profits. The goal of this scholarship is to expose the students of historic preservation, architecture, engineering, museum management, archaeology and other cultural resource stewardship fields to the traditional trades. Applicants may be current students, recent grads, apprentices, or beginning professionals. They should be working in the field of cultural resources and have a desire to learn more about the craft skills associated with Historic Preservation.
Applications must be received by COB August 26, 2016.
