CUPA-HR is higher ed HR, and the association’s nearly 75-year history is a testimony to the strength and resilience of its members. The challenges HR is facing are unprecedented, and we’re working tirelessly to bring you the resources and support you need.

As budgets are strained and the future remains uncertain, our colleagues across the country are making tough choices about how to support their institutions going forward. For many, budgets have been cut extensively, leaving no room for critical association memberships and professional development.

To help CUPA-HR member institutions continue their memberships during uncertain times, CUPA-HR is offering membership grants thanks to the generous support of Fidelity Investments and Voya Financial.

Membership grants offer continued access to learning, resources, advocacy and connections for up to six institutional or international CUPA-HR members who can demonstrate a financial need, would otherwise not be able to renew, and have demonstrated reasonable engagement in the association over the past year.

CUPA-HR will accept grant applications through the end of December 2020 for membership through June 30, 2021. Available grants are limited. CUPA-HR will evaluate applications and award available grants monthly. Higher ed institutions are eligible to receive a membership grant once every three years.
