NCHO Scholarships

NCHO annually awards funds to delegates across the state to inspire a diverse attendance to our annual conference celebration. Submission is quick and easy and only requires you to answer two essay questions regarding your professional goals, how attending the conference might help you achieve them and how you plan to utilize the experience with attending the annual conference to enhance the residential community on your campus.  Now how easy is that!

In addition to the scholarships for annual conference attendance, NCHO provides scholarships for attendance at SEAHO, ACUHO-I, RELI and NHTI. To apply and learn more about those scholarships, visit the scholarships page.

To be eligible for a scholarship, candidates must follow the criteria for the specific award and submit the application and any required supporting documents.
