INFORMATION ABOUT THE
MARY McCARRON MEMORIAL HAI SCHOLARSHIP FUND
for Northern California and Southern California Regions
Mary K. McCarron was a HAI participant and volunteer who found enormous personal growth in the HAI workshops. At an event for our volunteers, Mary suggested that we raise money to support people who could not afford to pay for workshops. Mary wrote a check for $500 and individually asked each volunteer at the event to contribute, then and there. Her fierce determination was the beginning of our scholarship fund. To date, we have raised and awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars, enabling dozens of people each year to come to a HAI workshop, regardless of their personal financial constraints.
Through her acts of empowerment, we are all encouraged to see the world through Mary’s eyes—as an opportunity for love, kindness, abundance and generosity. Mary was killed in a car accident several years after she created the scholarship fund. Today it is named the Mary McCarron Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Level 1 Priority (Level 2 Considered)
In reviewing applications, priority is given to people applying to attend a Level 1 workshop for the first time. Level 2 may also be considered.
The maximum scholarship available is $200 for Connecting in Love (Level 1) and $300 for Loving Yourself (Level 2). Your deposit of $200 is required at the time of registration (not scholarship monies). Full scholarships are not available.
Please answer each question on the application to the best of your ability. If you are unable to answer a question, please indicate and state why you are not providing the information requested. Applications are not considered if information is incomplete.
Please submit your application by the first of the month. The volunteer Scholarship Team meets in the middle of each month. Applications received after the first of the month may not be reviewed in time for your requested workshop date. You will be notified by the HAI Global office with the results of your scholarship application. Additional information will be needed from you for actual workshop registration.
If you are granted a scholarship, you will have up to six months to use it. After six months the scholarship reverts back to the general scholarship fund.
If your scholarship application is denied, you may reapply with any additional information. When you receive a scholarship, you are not eligible to reapply for an additional scholarship for at least one year from the date of the workshop attended. In this case, you should also indicate on your application that you have received a prior scholarship.
Your application will be held in strict confidence and reviewed only by the Scholarship Team and the HAI Global office.
Scholarships are funded by individual donations. Money for the scholarship fund is received by donations. We request if you receive a scholarship, that you consider contributing back to the Scholarship Fund some time in the future.
