PTN is pleased to accept applications for the second annual Misia Leonard Scholarships.  Each scholarship recipient will have their costs associated with attending the IPTW in Detroit paid up to $1000.  This includes their conference fee, lodging and travel costs. Applicants need to send a letter to PTN President, Ian Stewart, explaining the reason they would like to attend the IPTW and include their contact information.  They will also have to show proof that they are eligible for the scholarship based on one of the three criteria listed below.  Once the awards are made, recipients will be notified by mail or email and given a special code by which they can register for the conference.  Lodging, travel and meal costs (outside the IPTW) will be handled through reimbursement after the conference ends.  Each award winner will be required to write a few paragraphs about their experience to be published in the PTN newsletter 

To be eligible for the scholarship, you must either:

A. Be enrolled in a recognized historic preservation or preservation trades program at a high school, college, university or technical school level (include a photocopy of Fall term schedule) or a high school student who is contemplating a career in the trades (letter from High School teacher or counselor);

B. Be enrolled in an official apprenticeship program (include a copy of your official apprenticeship agreement);

C. Or be employed by a PTN member’s firm for less than one year (include a letter from the company owner on company letterhead stating the date you started employment.)

A scholarship committee consisting of the PTN President, Education Committee Chairman and the PTN Treasurer will select the winners from the applicants received.  Applications are due by June 30th, 2017.  It is PTN’s intention to select the five winners by mid-July so that they have time to register and make plans to attend the conference.
