Gulf Coast Goes to UNAVSA-14 Scholarship


The Union of North American Vietnamese Student Association’s 14th Annual Leadership Conference is being held in our very own backyard this year in the great city of New Orleans, Louisiana. This conference is an incredible opportunity to network with VSA members and alumni from across the continent, and it can help jumpstart your future career!

We understand it can get a little expensive attending conference, so UVSA Gulf Coast would like to offer scholarships to THREE VSA members in our region to attend UNAVSA-14. Returning attendees AND new attendees are encouraged to apply. The scholarships will only cover hotel and registration costs, not transportation. If you happen to win a scholarship but are already registered for conference, we will reimburse you.

This year’s conference registration will use a tier system instead of the early/regular/late registration price in the past. With this tier system, once all of the spots for Tier 1 are sold out, the price of registration moves onto Tier 2, and so on. The following is a cost breakdown for conference:

Tier 1 / Early Registration: $82.11
Tier 2 / Regular Registration: $97.44

Hotel Costs

(prices are PER PERSON for the ENTIRE duration of conference):

• Quad Room: $125.22/person (highly recommended)

• Triple Room: $166.86/person

• Double Room: $250.14/person

• Single Room: $499.98/person
