Masters of Historic Preservation Students Receive Grant

For the fourth consecutive year, UGA Masters of Historic Preservation students have received a Keepers Preservation Education Fund (KPEF) fellowship grant to attend the 2008 National Trust for Historic Preservation Conference.

The conference, which this year is being held at the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, Oklahoma, provides an opportunity for students to gain exposure to cutting-edge ideas and to interact with leaders within the field of preservation and other allied professions.  Previous KPEF grants allowed UGA MHP students to attend the annual conference in St. Paul, Minnesota in 2007; Louisville, Kentucky in 2006; and Cleveland, Ohio in 2005.

KPEF fellowship grants, established in 1988, support students and practitioners interested in furthering their knowledge in historic preservation and architectural conservation.  This year’s award recipients from the College of Environment and Design include Ashley Berry, Christopher Daniels, Taylor Davis, Rebecca Hagar, Lindsay Joyner, Lindsey Kerr, Malachi Peacock, Timothy Revis, Stella Smith, Sean Stucker, Kimberly Kooles, and Heather McDonald. Kooles and McDonald prepared the grant application.
