2014 Student Scholars

Mentoring the Next Generation

APT has selected the following students to receive an APT Québec City 2014 Conference registration and a complimentary one-year APT membership.  Each APT Student Scholar has been invited to give an oral presentation during one of the Conference paper sessions. Each student has been assigned a mentor from the APT College of Fellows and a Session Chair to ensure that he/she develops a quality program.

One student will also be awarded the Martin Weaver Student Scholarship for research. Martin Edward Weaver (1938-2004) was a well-known senior research scholar and adjunct associate professor of historic preservation at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation from 1991 to 2003. He was also a member of the APT College of Fellows. He was an expert in the conservation of wood-based architectural materials and helped develop the scientific field of architectural conservation both in the United States and internationally.

We congratulate Amanda Webb, awarded the 2014 Martin Weaver Student Scholarship!

Congratulations to our 2014 Student Scholars! We look forward to seeing you in Québec!
