Lori Zabar and the Zabar Family Foundation have partnered with the Preservation League to award three annual scholarships of $1,000 each to the best and brightest preservation students from around the state.

Available exclusively to students currently enrolled in a historic preservation-focused program in New York State, (3) scholarships of $1,000 each will be awarded annually during the spring semester. These are competitive scholarships, intended to help defray the cost of a student’s education.

Applications for the 2020 scholarship award will open later this year.


All applicants will need to submit:

  • A completed application form;

  • Personal essay (no more than 500 words);

  • (1) copy of your current school transcript; and

  • (1) letter of recommendation from a person qualified to assess your academic work.


Congratulations to the inaugural Zabar Scholars!
