Scholarship available for IHRSA Institute

For those who are not aware, IHRSA offers a way to help you get to the IHRSA Institute.

The John McCarthy Merit Scholarship, named for IHRSA's first executive director, includes full registration, program materials and handouts, social and networking events, lodging, and meals, as well as a $500 travel stipend. That is a $2,850 value.

Rick Devereux, IHRSA's former director of Operations and Marketing, originally conceived the scholarship and was responsible for the fundraising that helped established the fund. He wanted to establish this scholarship to honor McCarthy for his passion about the need for the education the Institute provides.

The Institute, back for the first time since 2009, will be Aug. 5-8 at the Rizzo Conference Center on the University of North Carolina campus.

Deadline to submit the materials for the scholarship is June 6. Go to to download the application and reference questionnaire.
