The Florida Chapter HFMA offers a limited number of scholarships to Healthcare Providers which allows for full participation at our three annual conferences. The purpose of the provider scholarship program is to help defray the cost of attending this conference for members who work for healthcare providers (e.g., registration, lodging & transportation). The amount and quantity of scholarships awarded will depend on the funding and any specific underwriting received by sponsors. It is the intent of the Florida Chapter HFMA to award scholarships to as many attendees as possible. Applicants must work for healthcare providers and be active members of HFMA.
Scholarships will be awarded based upon several criteria, including:
- Diversity in the provider base of applicants
- Number of applicants
- Available funding and sponsorships
- HFMA volunteer involvement
- Description of need
Travel costs to be reimbursed will be based on receipt of documentation supporting actual costs and based on the mode of travel that is both practical and economical, to be determined at the discretion of the committee. Cost of meals is not included as the conference provides most of the meals.
Any scholarships awarded but not utilized may be given to other applicants at the sole discretion of the HFMA Florida Chapter President before the conference. If you are awarded a scholarship, please promptly confirm your commitment to utilizing the scholarship so that unused scholarships can be redistributed to other attendees. A scholarship is only available to the recipient and is not transferable.
