Second Year of the Harrison Goodall Preservation Fellowship
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: National Park Service in partnership with Preservation Maryland
Website: https://www.preservationmaryland.org/announcing-the-second-year-of-the-harrison-goodall-preservation-fellowship/

PURPOSE

The Harrison Goodall Preservation Fellowship 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, not only in the National Park Service, but nationwide and at any level (e.g., other federal agencies, state and county parks, non-profit history museums, etc.).In brief, the fellowship 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 fellowship program is flexible to encourage creativity and allow fellows to continue to study, work, or engage in other activities.

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. Fellows not only make a contribution to the field of preservation but also grow professionally as a result of their interaction with a preservation mentor.

In the words of Harrison Goodall, “Preservation changed my life; I’d like to see it do the same for others.”

TARGET AUDIENCE

This opportunity is aimed at both emerging and seasoned preservation professionals and graduate students enrolled at least part-time in a preservation-related degree program (historic preservation, museum studies, history, archeology, urban planning, architecture, preservation trades, etc.). Applications will be accepted from federal and non-federal applicants.

TARGET PURSUITS

Creativity and divergent thinking are encouraged for fellowship self-directed pursuits. While we invite fellows from a wide range of fields, a project must demonstrate a tangible contribution to the field of historic preservation. Common project categories:
  • self-study or skill development
  • education programs/curriculum development
  • microlearning development
  • app/software development
  • research
  • treatment development
  • leadership/management
  • community engagement
Other preservation-related endeavors may be undertaken with the approval of the fellowship committee. Pursuits related to the preservation of vernacular architecture are encouraged.

ADDITIONAL EXAMPLE PURSUITS (PDF)

FELLOWSHIP EXPERIENCE

Once accepted, fellows will be paired with (or continue working with) a mentor appropriate to their field of study. Fellows will develop a plan with their mentors which establishes a timeline for deliverables, a broad outline of their final deliverables, and expectations for collaboration and communication. Every fellowship will result in a different deliverable which will be due by August of their fellowship year.

FELLOWSHIP AWARD

Candidates are admitted as fellows for a year (August to August). The program will provide a $5,000 award.

SELECTION CRITERIA

The final selection of projects to be funded will be based on the applicant’s ability to demonstrate:
  • a meaningful and tangible contribution to the field of historic preservation
  • a high level of scholarship or understanding of the pursuit
  • an emphasis on innovation and critical thinking
  • a contribution to the professional growth of the candidate
  • the benefit of mentor involvement
  • the ability to share and/or present the project within the preservation community
