Spring Conferences

Spring Event Conference Scholarships

Scholarship applications for the 2020 spring conferences are open December 5 through January 16. 

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 2020 spring events — the Spring Conference hosted by the Eastern and Southern Regions in Savannah, Georgia, or the Spring Conference hosted by the Midwest and Western Regions in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

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 Opens — December 5, 2019
  • Scholarship Application Deadline — January 16, 2020
  • Recipient Notification — January 24, 2020
  • Acceptance Due — January 31, 2020
