Veracity is generously offering a “full ride” to 2 members, each worth over $1500. Both scholarships include:

–        1 conference registration

–        4 nights hotel stay at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort in Tucson, Arizona

–        $500 for travel and other expenses

This is an absolutely amazing opportunity and we are beyond thrilled to be able to offer 2 members the chance to attend conference via scholarship.


Visit the Conference Scholarship page to download the application form, fill out five essay questions including why you need the help and what you hope to gain at conference and submit to HSCG headquarters by January 31, 2014.

The scholarship selection panel will review all of the applications and select the winners, who will be announced via member enews.

Remember, scholarships are open to members only and no late entries will be considered. Every year, we receive a flood of compelling entries, so make sure you give yourself plenty of time over the next two months to formulate a winning story. We can’t wait to see what you come up with and of course, we can’t wait to see you at conference (161 days and counting!!).

Submit your scholarship applications by January 31, 2014 to be eligible!
