Information on 2019 Annual Conference scholarships will be available in April.

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 and accommodations for three nights at the CUPA-HR Annual Conference & Expo 2018, October 7-9, 2018 in Indianapolis, IN. Any additional expenses are the responsibility of the recipient.

Eligibility and Timeline

Scholarships are available to HR professionals employed by CUPA-HR member institutions. Applicants must describe how they would benefit from receiving the scholarship and why they would not be able to attend the conference without the scholarship.
