For a list of past recipients click here. The awards are for completed research (such as dissertations, theses, and special projects) in the related fields. Recipients are expected to present their work at the upcoming or one of the future annual conventions of the NHCA. The recipient(s) will receive a cash award of $500.00 and up to $2000.00 for travel and registration expenses following their presentation at one of the annual conferences of the NHCA. Receipts must be submitted for reimbursement of reasonable travel and registration expenses which are limited to $2000.00.
