This year, the Hydrocephalus Association (HA) will be awarding financial assistance to ensure that as many families are able to attend the National Conference on Hydrocephalus. Assistance is made possible through the generosity of donors and can be used to help cover conference registration, lodging and travel costs. The number of scholarships and type of financial assistance received will depend on the applicant’s needs and available funds. Are you interested in applying? Click here.

The number of scholarships and type of financial assistance received will depend on the applicant’s needs and available funds.
How selection works.
Applications close on April 1st, after which staff will review applications. Recipients will be announced by May 1st. Those selected will have the option to accept or decline their scholarship within five days of notification.
If you are a recipient of a partial financial aid package, you must provide HA staff with proof of travel arrangements by June 1, 2018. This is to ensure that all awards are used to attend HACONNECT. We want to avoid awarding a scholarship to someone who does not attend when there is another person with a financial need who could have attended as a substitute.
