Preservation Scholars Program Now Accepting Applications

The Texas Historical Commission is now accepting applications for the 2018 Preservation Scholars Program! The deadline for applications and supporting documents is March 16, 2018. If selected, in-person interviews will be held in April. The Friends of the Texas Historical Commission (FTHC) created the Preservation Scholars Program to build interest in, and awareness of, careers in historic preservation, specifically among students from underrepresented cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups. This initiative strives to encourage students' interest in the fields of history, preservation, architecture, archeology, downtown revitalization, and heritage tourism.
