We thank you for your interest in the HITS Program. Below is a list of commonly asked questions. If you feel your question has not been answered, please feel free to send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your institution name and address along with your request. We ask that you label your Subject line: HITS Program Inquiry.
Is travel and hotel accommodations covered for the on-campus workshop?
There is no registration fee for the Scholars program. Up to 3 hotel nights, refreshments and lunches will be paid by the HRSA grant. Scholars are responsible for travel, additional hotel nights, meals outside of the conference, parking and other incidentals.
I am from a University outside of the United States, is this program open to me?
We apologize, since this is a federally funded grant, we can only offer the program to faculty in the US and its territories. However, as we develop and implement the program, we will be disseminating the information widely via conferences and online.
I am not a faculty member, however I am very interested in HITS. Can I still apply?
We think it would be great if you and a faculty member applied. Because of the nature of the funding, we most likely would not select you alone, but as a team, it could work. You should complete the application and let us know the faculty member who will accompany you. Both you and the faculty member must complete an application; however, you will only need one letter of support from the Administrator of the school. The letter should mention both applicant's names.
Can more than one faculty member from the same institution apply for the scholars program?
Yes, we recommend two faculty per institution; however, we expect that the two faculty will work together on a single project. Be sure to make this clear on your application when you tell us about your proposed technology project.
If two faculty members from the same institution wish to apply, do we need to complete two applications?
Yes, you will both need to complete the application form; however, you will only need to attach one letter of support from the program administrator of the school. The letter should mentionboth applicant's names. The support letter needs to be included in a single e-mail to email@example.com.
What happens if I start the application and realize that I don't have a piece of information?
You must complete the entire application in one sitting. You will not be able to save and return to the application, so please be sure you have all the information you need before starting the application process. It may be best to review the application first, take note of information you need from other sources, and lastly complete the application online.
