Student Opportunities

It is part of our mission to educate the future professionals  by actively seeking out the participation of students within our chapter.  APTNE engages students with a strong passion for historic preservation and/or related academic fields through free access to our chapter and our chapter events, community outreach, and annual scholarships.

Please reach out to the Student Outreach co-chairs Lena Currie and James Norberg or join our mailing list to learn about even more opportunities!
