Celebrating 30 years in 2022, the Diversity Scholarship Program has provided over 2,500 scholarships to conference participants from historically underrepresented groups in the preservation movement and its allied fields including race, ethnicity, gender, gender identification, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic background.

Those who identify with one or more of these underrepresented groups are eligible for the scholarship. Preservation volunteers, students, and professionals are all encouraged to apply.

Scholars receive complimentary registration for PastForward Online 2022. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the program, the National Trust is also offering opportunities to participate in bi-monthly convenings which will be held through September 2023.

These convenings will provide practical guidance to maximize opportunities with the National Trust and facilitate important networking opportunities with outstanding national leaders from a variety of professions within the wide-ranging movement.
