Each scholar will be included as a Conference presenter and deliver a 5- to 10-minute oral presentation and answer questions as part of a Conference paper session.

Testimonials from Past Student Scholars
A chance meeting before lunch at APT Puerto Rico in 2007 led Lyles McBratney to her current position at the structural engineering firm, 4SE, Inc. "During the conversation, my friend mentioned that I was moving to Charleston without a job. I guess lunch became an impromptu interview, because the gentleman who is now my boss asked me to join his firm soon after. Many APT members not only own their own small design firms, but they feel it's important to act as a mentor as well. I can’t tell you how much I have learned working here, while also being able to contribute greatly to what we do. Young preservations should jump at the opportunity to become a Student Scholar!
While pursuing a graduate degree in conservation at the Université de Montréal from 1999 to 2001, Susan M. Ross, Architect (OAQ), MRAIC, LEED AP, was fortunate to receive APT scholarships to conferences and workshops in Banff, Alberta and Philadelphia, PA. "As a mature student recently returned from working in Europe, becoming part of the APT network was an excellent way to reconnect to the professional North American context. I met many APT members who have remained influences or mentors of some kind ever since. I encourage students to apply for a scholarship— there is so much that it can lead to." Since 2002, Susan has worked as a conservation architect with the Canadian federal government.
Her experience as a student presenter at APT 2009 allowed Jennifer Schork, now a Conservator at Integrated Conservation Resources, to find other professionals who "also love mortar." During her scholarship experience, Jennifer was paired with an architect-engineer from NYC who also shared her interests and connected her to a small group of people focusing on bonding material. The APT Student Scholar Program "is an important opportunity, as a poor student, to not only gain experience but to network," she said.
Deadline: All abstracts should be submitted electronically. Abstracts are to be submitted by Sunday, March 31, 2013. Notification of acceptance of abstracts will be made in spring 2013.
