Preserve, Reuse, and Pass Forward Oregon's Historic Resources...
Thanks to the coordinated efforts of Oregon's State Historic Preservation Office, the Historic Preservation League of Oregon is thrilled to offer scholarships to residents of Oregon and full-time students attending an Oregon high school or university to attend the 2012 National Preservation Conference in Spokane, Washington. The conference, which runs October 31 through November 3, will draw an estimated 2,000 preservationists to the Pacific Northwest to attend a range of educational sessions, field trips, affinity programs, and informational on-your-own activities all related to the preservation of historic places. This year, the annual conference will focus heavily on sustainability, diversity, public lands, and reimagining historic sites.
The HPLO scholarship is intended to cover costs for a wide range of Oregonians to attend the Conference, from students and academics, to contractors and barn people. Each scholarship will provide reimbursement for up to $1,000 in costs associated with attending the conference, including registration fees, travel, lodging, and food. Applications will be accepted between June 18th and July 15th with decisions being announced by phone on July 27th. Those awarded a scholarship will be encouraged to attend a special Northwest Regional Scholarship Orientation in Spokane on October 31 from 3:00 to 4:00pm.
For more information and to apply for a scholarship, download an application form or contact the HPLO office at 503.243.1923. Those who applied for scholarship funding through the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation are automatically included in the applicant pool for the Oregon scholarship.
