National Preservation Conference Scholarships

The National Trust for Historic Preservation is holding its annual National Preservation Conference in Spokane, October 31-November 3, 2012. With an estimated attendance of more than 2,000 people, the conference attracts nationally recognized experts and practitioners in preservation and revitalization. The Washington Trust for Historic Preservation and Spokane Preservation Advocates have worked to raise funds to provide conference scholarships for residents and students of Washington State. Additional scholarship funds are being raised in Oregon and Idaho.

With a theme of “Beyond Boundaries,” the conference will feature interactive educational sessions, field sessions, affinity sessions for partnership building and networking, and informational on-your-own activities. This year, the conference will focus on sustainability, diversity, public lands, and reimagining historic sites. For more information about the conference, please visit the National Trust’s conference web page.
