Indiana Landmarks seeks future Black preservation leaders
Indiana Landmarks has created a $20,000 scholarship aimed at educating future Black preservation leaders. The college scholarship is for Black students in Indiana who are attending or planning to attend an accredited college or university.
Indiana Landmarks says preference will be given to the following majors: history, public history, African/African American studies, archaeology/anthropology, preservation, conservation, city planning, landscape architecture, and journalism.
“Indiana is full of untold stories of Black heritage, and we see the new scholarship and internships as key to helping gather the facts, tell the stories, and preserve the heritage,” said Eunice Trotter, director of Indiana Landmarks’ Black Heritage Preservation Program.
Applicants must be a graduating high school senior, undergraduate, graduate student, or post-graduate.
The deadline to apply is May 12. It will be awarded for the 2023-24 school year. Click here to learn more about the scholarship program.
