Special consideration will be given to students not receiving other scholarships or tuition waivers. Awardees will also be granted one year free HLA membership.
Current HLA members may apply for the HLA Professional Award, which provides up to $1,000 for professional growth and development at all levels, including paraprofessionals, and may be used towards conference attendance or continuing education.
