History of Program
The HAI Group Board of Directors is committed to helping improve the lives of people who live in public and affordable housing. One of the ways we do this is through our Resident Scholarship Program, which has awarded more than $1,000,000 to more than 400 students to date!
Housing Authority Insurance, Inc.,—one of our family of companies—sponsors the program, which provides residents with an opportunity to apply for a scholarship to offset the cost of continuing education. Students may win scholarships for up to four consecutive years!
The 2019 resident scholarship program is currently accepting applications. This year we are awarding 20 scholarships worth $6,000.00 each. Awards will be issued before the 2019 fall semester. Scholarships may be awarded to past winners of the Scholarship Program, and past winners may submit an application up to five (5) days prior to the start of the Scholarship Entry Period. Prior winners who enter and fulfill all requirements shall be awarded preference over new applicants, and remaining scholarships shall be awarded to new applicants after such preference is given.
PLEASE NOTE: This application is submitted directly to HAI Group via the above link.
