PreserveWA Fellowship

In an effort to highlight fresh and diverse voices in preservation, the Washington Trust is proud to offer the PreserveWA Fellowship. Typically, the Fellowship supports first-time attendance at the RevitalizeWA Conference by students and young professionals with interest in gaining professional exposure to the fields of historic preservation and downtown revitalization. In 2019, the Washington Trust is pleased to offer this  opportunity for the National Main Street Conference, to be held in Seattle on March 25-27.

Who is eligible?

Requirements: Age 18-29; currently studying, residing, or working in Washington State.

Applicants studying or working in preservation, architecture, history, archaeology, anthropology, engineering, construction, community development, economics, sociology, or a related field with an interest in historic preservation or the Main Street Approach are encouraged to apply!

How does the Fellowship work?

The award will cover the cost of registration for the conference (valued at $400+), excluding tours.

Each selected Fellow will be matched with a leader in a related field to serve as a mentor. The Fellow will connect with their Mentor prior to and/or during the conference to discuss educational and professional paths.

Following the conference, Fellows will be asked to write an article about what they learned as a first-time attendee (or other relevant topic) to be published in the Washington Trust’s quarterly magazine, This Place.


The 2019 application period is now closed.
