Meet The 2013 Diversity Scholars

10-4 Crossroads_Image_03.pngCelebrating its 21st year at the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Diversity Scholarship Program (DSP) will welcome 30 diversity scholarship recipients to the National Preservation Conference in Indianapolis, Ind!

All are invited to meet the scholarship recipients and learn about preserving heritage. Diversity Scholars will present at several conference events, including the DSP Scholarship Program opening session on Wednesday, October 30 at 2 p.m., and Power Sessions (30-minute information sessions) in the B&O Room of the historic Crowne Plaza Hotel on Thursday, October 31 and Friday, November 1.  Registration packages will include a final program that lists full descriptions of the conference events.

Click here for the roster of the 2013 Diversity Scholars. Or, feel free to stop by the DSP Information Desk at the Crowne Plaza Hotel for information about DSP and a copy of the 2013 Scholarship Directory. A limited supply of handouts will be available. More than half of the Diversity Scholarship recipients are attending the conference for the first time, so please make a point to say hello to them during conference events. Scholars will be wearing orange ribbons.

The 2013 DSP Mixer at The Alexander, A Dolce Hotel

Sponsored by the National Trust Advisors, DSP will host its annual mixer at The Alexander (in the Fletcher Room steps away from Plat 99 Lounge) on Thursday, October 31 from 7:30-9:00 p.m.  Guests will have the opportunity to nosh, network, share wisdom, and catch up with old friends. DSP scholars, alumni, and mentors are encouraged to attend. 

As we're subject to space limitations and want to provide adequate food for all of our guests, please send us an email at to let us know if you plan to attend.  We hope you’ll join us for some good old-fashioned preservation fun at The Alexander—Halloween costumes optional!
