Diversity Scholarship Program
The Diversity Scholarship Program (DSP) supports and strengthens the work of diverse grassroots leaders by sharing with them a broad range of preservation tools and networks. DSP provides financial assistance to individuals from diverse social, economic, racial, ethnic and cultural backgrounds to attend the National Preservation Conference. Scholarship recipients and alumni also receive preservation news and training resources, firsthand, throughout the year.
DSP has welcomed over 1,100 participants to the program and has helped enrich the overall Conference experience by incorporating diverse perspectives in the Conference’s programming and providing opportunities for conference attendees to learn from these dynamic community leaders.
The National Trust seeks culturally diverse applicants whose attendance at the Conference will benefit their communities and whose commitment to historic preservation will be reinforced by their participation. Recipients will have an opportunity to express their perspectives during the Conference and to take advantage of National Trust programs after the Conference.
