Scholarships for Summit


Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) is proud to offer scholarships for Summit 2015 + Expo held during September 1-3, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville-Riverfront Hotel. The scholarship package will include 3 nights stay at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville-Riverfront during the selected conference dates.  There will be 500 scholarships awarded to qualifying clinicians, on a first come, first serve bases.  For those who have already registered, your name has been added to the first group for consideration for scholarships.

Definition: The 2015 scholarship will represent a designated three (3) nights’ credit for guestroom and tax only at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville-Riverfront, not to exceed the meeting’s hotel guestroom rate of $99 per night plus 14.13% tax.  The Hyatt Regency Jacksonville-Riverfront guestroom reservations must comply with the contracted “meeting guestroom block.”

  • Designated three (3) nights credit: The 2015 scholarship will cover guestroom and tax charges for September 1-3, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville-Riverfront only.
  • Hotel Reservations: The PVA is under contractual obligation to the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville-Riverfront for guestroom nights. To receive the scholarship, your reservation MUST qualify for PVA's Guestroom Block.  Hotel reservations made using a coupon, travel credit program, Expedia, Travelocity or any other method, including government rate reservation will not be included in PVA's guestroom block by the hotel.
  • Hotel Reservation Procedure: If you are awarded PVA's Summit 2015 scholarship, upon receiving notification you must reserve your room online. Click here to reserve your room online or call 1-888-421-1442 and reference PVA Summit2015.
  • Hotel Cancellation Policy: If you elect to cancel after accepting the scholarship or no show you will be responsible for one night's hotel cost.
  • Application: The 2015 scholarship application is part of the conference online registration system. Once registration is completed, you will receive a confirmation letter. Your scholarship request approval notification will be sent via a separate email.
  • Guestroom Sharing: The 2015 scholarship applies only to the guestroom nights. For eligible attendees sharing a room, since the scholarship applies to guestroom nights, only the designated 3 nights will be credited to the guestroom.
  • Reservation Name: The hotel reservation must be made in the same name used for your conference registration. Any other name, i.e. married name or hyphenated name, not currently in the database creates difficulties matching the conference registration list with the hotel guestroom list. The scholarship will not be applied to the guestroom, if the name does not match the conference registration list.
