Gift to HSA
A gift to HSA helps support the day to day operations of the office, supplement funding for scholarships and events promoting Haitian Scholarship.
Emerging Scholars Fund
HSA established the Student and Emerging Scholars’ fund during the 2006 conference. Since 2008 the HSA board has earmarked $1000 annually to support student research and participation in our annual conference. Two scholarships ($500 each) may be applied toward travel and accommodation expenses incurred for attending an HSA conference and/or presenting a specific research project concerning Haiti and/or the Haitian diaspora.
Michel Rolph Trouillot Scholarship
The Michel-Rolph Trouillot Fund was started in 2012 to expand participation in HSA among Haiti-based academic and public scholars, artists, and professionals who might not be able to attend the conference without financial assistance.
