Jerry A. Tishman Scholarships


The Preservation Foundation is proud to offer two scholarship opportunities available to students who study architecture and have an interest in historic preservation. The scholarship was established as the result of a generous bequest from, and is named in honor of, Jerry A. Tishman, Preservation Foundation member and preservation advocate. The scholarship fund will provide architecture students with funds to help support their education costs during the school year and for a summer program.

For assistance with annual tuition, the chosen graduate student, or undergraduate student entering their fourth or fifth year in a combined bachelors/masters program, should be enrolled in a school of architecture and be in good academic standing. The student will receive an award of $10,000 made out to their school of choice.

A second opportunity is available for undergraduate and graduate students pursuing a summer program in the field of historic preservation. The chosen student will receive an award of $3,300 made out to a summer program of  their choice that focuses on the preservation of historic properties.
