Guidelines for Applicants

Who Qualifies?
Financial aid is available for individuals ages 3 and older. The financial aid application must be completed by an adult 25 years or older.
What the scholarship provides.
The Hydrocephalus Association will offer three financial aid packages which includes one of the following:

Partial Financial Aid Package:
  • Full registration
  • Full registration and Two Nights Hotel
Full Financial Aid Package:
  • Full Registration, Two Nights Hotel and Travel Stipend
Recipients will be given a complimentary, full registration to HA CONNECT. Awardees are asked to attend all three days of the conference as well as the activities and receptions that are part of the experience. Registration includes access to all sessions and receptions.

The number of scholarships and type of financial assistance received will depend on the applicant’s needs and available funds.

How Selection Works.
Financial aid opens January 6, 2020 and closes on April 1, 2020, after which staff will review applications. Recipients will be announced by May 1, 2020. Those selected will have the option to accept or decline their scholarship within five days of notification.
If you are a recipient of a financial aid package, you must provide HA staff with proof of travel arrangements by June 1, 2020. This is to ensure that all awards are used to attend HA CONNECT. 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.

If you need assistance completing the application, please call 888.598.3789 or email conference@hydroassoc.org. The information you provide will help assess your need, better understand your interest in attending and how we can best help as many families attend as possible.
