The Harrison Goodall Preservation Fellowship gives 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 fellowship 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.
Inspired by a gift from Harrison Goodall and made possible by Preservation Maryland, this NPS program aims to develop students and enterprising professionals into the preservation leaders of tomorrow. Fellows grow professionally through coaching from the fellowship committee and a preservation mentor.
