*It is NOT required that all four criteria are fulfilled to receive a scholarship award, but fulfilling multiple criteria is helpful.
MHAO will award full and partial scholarships. Full scholarships will cover the conference registration fee and hotel costs (based on double-occupancy) for up to four nights. MHAO will also offer partial scholarships of conference registration or hotel only. All other costs and arrangements associated with travel (i.e. travel to/from Seaside, meals not provided during the conference) will be the responsibility of the scholarship grantee. Applicants will be informed of award decisions no later than March 9, 2018.
