Hyatt Education Scholarship Award

Dear Conference Attendee,

I would like to take this time to thank you for attending the 39th Annual Conference of The WIC Association of New York State in Rochester this past May. 

As announced during the last session of the conference, the Hyatt Regency Rochester donated $10,000.00 to the WIC Association for the inconvenience of the construction during our conference.  It was agreed by the Association and the Hyatt that this donation would be put towards educational scholarships.  During the August board of director’s meeting the board members unanimously agreed to offer twenty, $500.00 educational scholarships specifically to those who attended the 2017 conference. 

The attached application provides the criteria for potential applicants.  Applications will be due no later than November 1, 2017.  If over 20 eligible applications are received, winners will be selected by lottery.

Please join me in thanking the Hyatt Regency Rochester for their generous donation! 

Stay tuned for information regarding the NYS WIC Association’s 40th Annual Conference to be held at the Crowne Plaza White Plains, March 25-28, 2018.

Looking forward to seeing you there!


Lauren Brand (on behalf of the WIC Association of NYS Board of Directors)
