Scholarships for Summit

Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) is proud to offer scholarships for Healthcare Summit + Expo held during August 14 – 17, 2023 at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld Hotel in Orlando, Florida. The scholarship package will include up to 3 nights stay at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld Hotel in Orlando, FL during the selected conference dates. There will be 250 scholarships awarded to qualifying clinicians, on a first come, first serve basis. For those who have already registered, your name has been added to the first group for consideration for scholarships.

Definition: The 2023 scholarship will represent a designated credit for up to three (3) nights' for guestroom and tax only at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld Hotel in Orlando, FL, not to exceed the conference hotel guestroom rate of $177 per night plus tax. The Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld Hotel in Orlando, FL guestroom reservations must comply with the contracted "meeting guestroom block."

  • Designated three (3) night credit: The 2023 scholarship will cover guestroom and tax charges for August 14 - 17, 2023 at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld Hotel in Orlando, FL only.  You are responsible for the first night's stay. If you are only staying August 15 - 17, you will still be responsible for the first night's stay.
  • Hotel Reservations: PVA is under contractual obligation to the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld Hotel in Orlando, FL for guestroom nights. To receive the scholarship, your reservation MUST qualify for PVA's Guestroom Block. Hotel reservations made using a coupon, travel credit program, Expedia, Travelocity or any other method, including government rate reservation will not be included in PVA's guestroom block by the hotel.
  • Hotel Reservation Procedure: If you are awarded PVA's Summit 2023 scholarship, upon receiving notification you must reserve your room online or by phone for your full length of stay. PVA will notify the hotel of the nights to be credited after your reservation has been made. Visit the Hotel and Travel page for more information.
  • Hotel Cancellation Policy: If you elect to cancel after accepting the scholarship or 'no show', you will be responsible for one night's hotel cost.
  • Application: The 2023 scholarship application is part of the conference online registration system. Once registration is completed, you will receive a confirmation letter. Your scholarship request approval notification will be sent via a separate email.
  • Guestroom Sharing: The 2023 scholarship applies only to the guestroom nights. For eligible attendees sharing a room, since the scholarship applies to guestroom nights, only the designated credit of up to 3 nights will be credited to the guestroom.
  • Reservation Name: The hotel reservation must be made in the same name used for your conference registration. Any other name, i.e. married name or hyphenated name, not currently in the database creates difficulties matching the conference registration list with the hotel guestroom list. The scholarship will not be applied to the guestroom, if the name does not match the conference registration list.
