2023 Jenrette Fellowship

In 2021, the Classical American Homes Preservation Trust launched the Jenrette Fellowship in Historic Preservation. This fellowship helps to fund a graduate student in the Clemson University Graduate Program in Historic Preservation for two years of graduate study. Jenrette Fellows are chosen on the basis of their academic excellence, demonstrated commitment to historic preservation, and promise as professionals of the future.

The 2023-24 Jenrette Fellow is Ryan Holcomb, a graduate of the University of Southern California, where he majored in GeoDesign, an interdisciplinary degree centered around the intersection of architecture, city planning, and spatial sciences.
