HOBY information for clubs

For the full letter of information, click HERE. Below is only an introduction, more details are in the letter.

HOBY is grateful for the partnership of our organizations. There are two ways your club can support HOBY:
We would like to provide a monetary contribution to HOBY to support a local student(s) attendance at a Leadership Seminar in 2017!

• The following process is recommended to ensure that your club’s donation supports the student and school you intend to sponsor.

• Full sponsorships are $395 per student. This fee covers the full cost for attendance of one student and ensures that no further financial contribution is required of the school or parents. HOBY will ensure that full sponsorships will be used to fund a school/student of your choice. If that school chooses not to participate, then funds will be appropriated to another school in your direct vicinity.

• Partial sponsorships are welcomed, however these funds will be used at HOBY’s discretion for the student/school most in need. The needs of schools in Florida change yearly thus we cannot guarantee that a partial scholarship will fund a school in your immediate vicinity.
