New Scholarship Supports Historic Preservation Professionals

The Keepers Preservation Education Fund, a scholarship managed by the Maine Community Foundation, provides financial support to aspiring or established historic preservation professionals in the United States.

William J. Murtagh, Ph.D., one of the world’s leading historic preservationists, established the Keepers Preservation Education Fund in 1988. Originally a charitable trust, the trustees voted to place the fund with the Maine Community Foundation in 2008.

Awards may be used for tuition, professional meeting attendance, special book or media purchases, domestic and foreign study travel, and other preservation education-related purposes. Applicants may be from anywhere in the United States.

The Keepers Preservation Education Fund also offers two fellowships: the H. Ward Jandl Fellowship, which supports the study of 20th-century building technology and related areas; and the Rhoad Family Fellowship, which supports volunteer or paid staff of house museums and similar preservation organizations.

Individuals must apply through a sponsoring institution or organization, which reviews and forwards the application to the Maine Community Foundation. MaineCF will not accept applications directly from individuals seeking aid.

The Keepers Fund has a rolling deadline, but MaineCF prefers to receive applications at least three months before the anticipated need.
