Spring Event Conference Scholarships

The deadline to submit a scholarship application for a 2019 Spring Conference has passed. You will be notified of your application status on January 25.

Each year, CUPA-HR awards several conference scholarships to individuals who want to engage in the learning, networking and professional development at CUPA-HR's spring events and would otherwise not have the means to attend.

The scholarships include conference registration and three nights’ accommodations in the conference hotel for one of CUPA-HR's 2019 spring events — the Spring Conference hosted by the Eastern and Southern Regions in Washington, D.C., or the Spring Conference hosted by the Midwest and Western Regions in Seattle, Washington.

Eligibility and Timeline

Scholarships are available to HR professionals employed by higher ed institutions. CUPA-HR membership is not a requirement. 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.

Because our goal is to assist those who have not had the means to attend a learning event, individuals who have received a learning event scholarship or attended a learning event within the past three years are not eligible for the scholarship.

The timeline for selection is as follows:

  • Scholarship Application Deadline — January 17, 2019
  • Notification — January 25, 2019
  • Acceptance Due — February 1, 2019
