It is part of our mission to educate the future professionals of our field by actively seeking out the participation of students within our chapter.
We offer student memberships and encourage the involvement of student attendees and presenters at our events. At our Annual Symposium each spring, we typically offer students the opportunity to present both papers and posters. An award scholarship is typically given to the paper or poster that we deem most worthy and is in the form of financial assistance for attendance at the Association for Preservation Technology International Annual Conference.
Sign up to be on our mailing list or consider presenting at our next Annual Symposium.

2015 APTI Scholarships
Students from across the world have played an important role in APT conferences 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.
• Have the opportunity to engage in one-on-one networking with industry professionals from around the world.
• Be paired with an APT College of Fellows mentor who will guide the student through the presentation process and provide introductions to industry colleagues.
• Be added to the growing network of past APT Student Scholars, who are catalogued in an alumni register.
The APTNE chapter also provides individual scholarships for the amount up to $1,500 via the “APTNE Student Scholarship Fund,” which is separate from the APTI Scholarships (Student Scholar Program). See a description below.
