There is no registration cost for the virtual symposium this year.

Instead, we encourage everyone to make a donation to the Health & Human Services Leadership Council Gap Scholarship Fund. This provides annual gap scholarships, typically between $500 and $1,000, to students in need. When facing a financial hardship, this extra gap funding can often be the deciding factor that allows students the opportunity to complete their degree.
