Eric DeLony Scholarship

Updated on January 2, 2020

The National Society for the Preservation of Covered Bridges (NSPCB) has been offering a scholarship honoring Eric DeLony (1944-2018), who served as chief of the Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) from 1971 to 2003 and is a noted historic preservationist. Mr. DeLony was particularly interested in the preservation of historic bridges.

The Society established the scholarship program to encourage students to pursue careers involving covered bridge preservation, repair and/or restoration. One or more awards may be offered for up to $1000 each. We are presently working with the Timber Framers Guild to evaluate the best options for the next offer.
