APT will select students to receive an APT/National Trust for Canada Ottawa Joint Conference registration and a complimentary one-year APT membership. Each Student Scholar will be invited to give an oral presentation during one of the Conference paper sessions in Ottawa. Each student will be 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.

The Herb Stovel Scholarship Fund is administered by the National Trust for Canada in cooperation with a professional advisory committee. The Fund awards one or more Canadian students or young professionals (age 20-35) pursuing post-secondary or graduate studies in built heritage conservation, or working in the field of built heritage conservation. With assistance from the Fund, Herb Stovel Scholars will receive support to deepen their capacity in heritage conservation through special projects, experiential learning or conference attendance.
