HACU Student Track
The HACU conference annually attracts hundreds of corporate, federal, and non-profit employers along with colleges and universities, all eager to talk to undergraduate students. A special Student Track program is specifically designed for undergraduate students. In addition Student Track serves as a forum for students to ask questions about careers and career development.
HACU’s 29th Annual Conference, “Championing Hispanic Higher Education Success: Empowering Students, Enhancing Collaboration" is scheduled for October 10-12, 2015, at the Fountainebleau Miami Beach Hotel, Miami Beach, FL. A limited number of scholarships are available to eligible students to attend the HACU conference. Student Track Scholarships will cover costs for: the conference registration; travel and lodging for out-of-state students; and one conference-related meal per day. Conference Scholarship recipients are required to attend ALL Student Track activities.
