The Historic Preservation Education Foundation (HPEF) is currently accepting proposals for the Spring 2015 round of its Partners in Training program. HPEF established Partners in Training last year to provide training opportunities on technical topics associated with preservation technology. Partners in Training seeks to replicate the success HPEF has enjoyed working with other educational institutions and organizations in the past.
HPEF is inviting educational institutions and nonprofit organizations to submit training proposals that address specialized topics associated with the technical aspects of preservation projects. For grant recipients, HPEF will contribute administrative and initial financial support (seed money to fund initial tasks, handling of registration and financial functions associated with the event, and assumption of financial risk). Administrative support includes participation in event planning, registration functions, and, as appropriate, assistance in online publication of materials prepared for the event. Grant recipients will assume all other responsibilities including marketing; coordination of onsite aspects associated with the venue; project budget; and staffing.
