Student Scholars

Mentoring the Next Generation

APT has selected the following students to receive an APT Charleston 2012 Conference registration and a complimentary one-year APT membership.  APT Student Scholars have been invited to give oral presentations during one of the Conference paper sessions. 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 is also 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.

Congratulations to our 2012 Student Scholars! We look forward to seeing you in Charleston! P.S. Do you know that even if you're not a Student Scholar, students can still attend the Conference at a reduced rate?
