The Canton Preservation Society's annual scholarship provides financial assistance to a Stark County student or graduate preparing for a career related to historic preservation.  Eligible applicants include students in technical, undergraduate or graduate study intending to enroll, or already enrolled, in a program in Historic Preservation or a related field which can include, but need be not limited to, Building Preservation, History, Architecture, American Studies, Urban Planning, or Museum Studies. 

The program of study must be at a U.S. university, college, or institution.  The student’s eligibility will be based partly on financial need and partly on the application materials, academic performance, community service and promise shown for future achievement, based on the judgment of a review panel.  The award is for a maximum of $1000.00 toward school tuition and paid directly to the school. 

Applications are available by calling the Canton Preservation Society at 330-452-9341, and must be postmarked no later than April 1, 2017.  The recipient will be honored at the CPS Annual Meeting in May 2017.
