The conference scholarship application for 2018 events will be available this fall.

Each year, CUPA-HR awards several conference scholarships to individuals who want to engage in the learning, networking and professional development at the CUPA-HR annual conference and would otherwise not have the means to attend. The scholarships cover registration, accommodations and up to $450 of other eligible travel expenses for the CUPA-HR Annual Conference & Expo 2017, September 16-18, 2017 in San Diego, CA. Any additional expenses beyond that amount are the responsibility of the recipient.
