The National Park Service today announced the recipients of $68,000 in federal competitive preservation technology and training grants.  These grants constitute the second round of awards since March, 2011.

Jonathan B. Jarvis, the director of the National Park Service, praised the recipients for “bringing the best skills and technology of the present to preserve the treasures of the past.”

The National Park Service's National Center for Preservation Technology and Training in Natchitoches, Louisiana selected the recipients and will administer the assistance agreements. The center strives to create new technologies and training opportunities to preserve prehistoric and historic resources throughout the United States.

The National Park Service awards these grants and agreements under Title IV
of the National Historic Preservation Act. The agency received 34 complete
applications for funding, which underwent peer review and a national panel
review, leading to the selection of these three awards:

* Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, Santa Fe, New Mexico, $25,000 to evaluate
practical applications of low cost digital photogrammetric methods for preservation documentation.

* Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, New York, $25,000 to create an innovative educational game strategy for conservation and preservation.

* University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, Arkansas, $18,000 to develop a comprehensive understanding of archaeological magnetism and instrumentation.
