    Hi! I goofed I think? I got a scholarship for my caregiver and myself for the conference for conference fees and hotel. I followed the link and accepted the scholarship and registered for the conference and made hotel reservation from the link in the email. I got confirmation of hotel reservation with a charge of $502.88. Did I mess up? I followed the instructions in the email. Please advise me what to do to fix this so I get the scholarship for hotel. We are first timers.

      Cara,

      Thanks for your post. Regarding hotel, you will be charged at check-out for any nights over two. I assume you reserved for more than two nights?

      Thank you for your quick reply. Do I cancel my reservation that I already made or leave things as they are?

      Michelle,

      Thank you for your question. In your award letter that was emailed to you, there is a direct link for SGL stipend with your registration waived. Please check your email and click on that link. it sounds like you are on the generic registration page where fees are charged. Let us know if you have any questions!

    I have received a US adult scholarship – I completed the registration but apparently didn’t pay close enough attention – I did not register my caregiver. What do I need to do?

      Linda,

      Please email meetings@phassociation.org. They will help you figure out what to do.

      What was your award for? Did it cover caregiver registration or not? It will say so in the award notification email you received.

    I have a confirmation of a Scholarship but don’t remember making a hotel reservation. Did I miss something like a step in the confirmation? If so how do I correct it?

      Yes it covered 2 nights, registration, and some money for travel.

      Great, Richard! There should have been a check-in/check-out date option at the end of your registration. You can check on your registration by email meetings@phassociation.org.

      I think I’ve got it. Thanks! I registered 3 nights picking up Thursday on my own nickle to be fresh Friday morning.

    Hi All! Can anyone clarify ‘travel expenses’ as the email said something about $0.14 per mile. I am driving down from Massachusetts.
    Thanks.

      Hi Stephanie,

      That’s the charitable mileage rate, the amount PHA is permitted to reimburse for mileage by law.
