Emerging Professional Sponsorship Program

APT DC is pleased to sponsor the annual Emerging Professional Sponsorship Program (EPSP), a tradition since 1999. The program provides stipends for an active APT DC member who is a recent graduate to attend the annual APTI conference. As part of its mission, APT DC supports emerging professionals that specialize in historic preservation or one of its affiliated fields - architecture, architectural or materials conservation, architectural history/research, construction, construction management, engineering, interiors, landscape architecture, or planning.

A second applicant will be selected to attend the annual International Preservation Trades Workshop (IPTW).


The 2024 sponsorship application is open from May 22nd through July 22nd.
