The Diversity Scholarship Program supports the attendance of leaders from underrepresented communities new to preservation and of emerging preservation professionals at the National Trust's annual conference, PastForward. DSP participants receive financial assistance in the form of complimentary registration and lodging at PastForward. Through DSP, more than 2,100 individuals have helped to increase the diversity—racial, ethnic, cultural, and socio-economic—of professionals in preservation, contributing a wide range of perspectives to the conference and enriching the preservation movement.
