Preserving the real places and the real stories of Texas.

Thank you for supporting the Preservation Scholars Program!

Education is central to the projects and programs the Friends of the Texas Historic Commission supports. Today’s students are tomorrow’s preservationists, and making sure that there is a workforce of passionate individuals is vital to the future study of our shared past. Your support will allow the Friends of the THC to provide stipends for undergraduate and graduate students from underrepresented ethnic and cultural backgrounds, as well as those from non-traditional academic backgrounds, exposure to the wide variety of specializations and careers within the field of historic preservation through internship placements at the Texas Historical Commission.  Scholars work under an internship agreement with the Friends of the THC, and are placed within the Texas Historical Commission (THC) for an eight-week full-time, paid internship.  Working with THC staff, Preservation Scholars gain experience in the fields of architecture, archeology, economic development, downtown revitalization, heritage tourism, and more.
