Supporting Young Scholars

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/College of Charleston joint 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 inaugural Jenrette Fellow is Emma Grace Sprinkle, a graduate of Wake Forest University, where she was an Anthropology major with a Historic Preservation Minor.

A native of North Carolina, Emma Grace is already an experienced cultural resource management professional who has worked for both the Commonwealth Heritage Group and Old Salem Museum & Gardens, in Winston-Salem.

Her career goals center around helping people understand the cultural significance of the built environment and to allow communities to better understand their history.

We are pleased and proud to welcome Emma Grace to Charleston and wish her every success in her graduate studies.
