The Harrison Goodall Grant for Innovative Historic
Preservation gives graduate students and enterprising professionals the
opportunity to undertake a focused pursuit that makes a meaningful contribution
to the field of historic preservation and support the stewardship of historic
resources nationwide and at any level (e.g., federal agencies, state and county
parks, non-profit history museums, etc.). The grant is a short-term opportunity
to pursue a unique self-directed project under the guidance of a mentor.
Recipients will receive recognition for a distinguished achievement while
creating original preservation training content, performing research, or
enhancing leadership and management skills.
In brief, the grant is meant to encourage and help
accomplish something exceptional and innovative.
Often during the rigors of a preservation graduate program
or while in professional employment, there aren’t opportunities to explore
issues that can create a difference in the preservation field. The format of
the program is flexible to encourage creativity and allow participants to
continue to study, work, or engage in other activities.
The grant awards one recipient $10,000 to support an innovative project
in the field of historic preservation. This project must impact more than just
one historic place; it must have the potential to be applied elsewhere and
impact how we do preservation. If you can improve the way we steward our
historic places, we want to see your ideas.
Inspired by a gift from Harrison Goodall and made possible
by Preservation Maryland, this NPS partnership is meant to promote innovation
in the field of historic preservation by allowing outstanding preservationists
to develop and conduct independent projects. Recipients not only contribute to
the field of preservation but also grow professionally as a result of their
interaction with a preservation mentor.
