APT Conference Student Scholarships and Presentations

Students from across the world have played an important role in APT Conference since the 1986 inception of the Student Scholarships Program.  Their student presentations have become of great interest to Conference participants.

Through the Student Scholarships Program, students from all areas of study in the field of historic preservation/conservation submit abstracts that illustrate research or a project that they have developed to address an aspect of preservation/conservation technology.  Scholarship recipient selection is based on: the quality of a submitted abstract; how well the concepts demonstrate excellence in the student’s area of study; a personal statement; and, the appropriateness of the subject to the Conference theme.  

Each scholarship recipient is required to create an electronic presentation (e.g. PowerPoint) to support his/her oral presentation during the APT fall Conference.

All jury-selected scholars will:

  • Be granted a Conference registration, a stipend for hotel and travel expenses, and one-year student membership to APT.
