Foundation Scholarships for HSA Employees

The Human Service Agency (HSA) strongly encourages employees to pursue additional formal education in an effort to further their licensing credentials that are directly related to their employment. To further these objectives, the Human Service Agency Foundation has created a scholarship fund for employees of HSA. A maximum of $500 is available for each request. Up to $1000 per fiscal year is available to full time employees who have been employed by HSA for one year prior to the request for a scholarship. The scholarship fund must be used for classes that are directly related to furthering their skills related to their employment.
