Applications will be reviewed by the WCAPT Student/Emerging Professional Scholarship Committee. Scholarship recipients will be determined based on the application outline for interest in historic preservation and preservation technology, as well as geographical and institutional distribution (as applicable). Applicants will be notified of the WCAPT Student/Emerging Professional Scholarship Committee’s selections on Friday. TBD, 2023.
Student scholarship applications for the October 2023 APTI conference in Seattle, Washington can be found at https://www.apti.org/scholarships.
Students from across the world have played an important role in APT conferences since the 1986 inception of the Student Scholarships Program. Their student presentations have become of great interest to Conference participants. Through the Student Scholarships Program, students from all areas of study in the field of historic preservation/conservation submit abstracts that illustrate research or a project that they have developed to address an aspect of preservation/conservation technology. Scholarship recipient selection is based on the quality of a submitted abstract; how well the concepts demonstrate excellence in the student’s area of study; a personal statement; and the appropriateness of the subject to the conference theme.
