To make the conference and social more accessible for all our members, we are once again offering HACAC Conference Scholarships. To apply for the HACAC Conference Scholarship, please fill out the form attached no later than February 15, 2023. 
HACAC 2023 Scholarship Application:
If applying for a scholarship, you may go ahead and register for the conference and select “pay by check” at the end of the registration. That way, you can still take advantage of the early bird rate. If approved for a scholarship, the registration fee will be waived. The scholarship can also help with travel costs for those living on our neighbor islands and hotel costs for one night. The travel, housing and ground transportation costs will be covered via reimbursement (more details on the application). 
As I often remind my students this time of year, only people who apply for scholarships are eligible to receive them. Please apply if you need a scholarship because we hope to see you all at the conference and social! 
Mahalo nui,

Farris James, HACAC Development Chair
Tyler Cegler, HACAC President 
Lei Haas, HACAC President-Elect
