"On behalf of the University of Alabama in Huntsville, I would like to thank HASBAT for your dedication and support to the scholarship program at UAH. HASBAT's continued commitment allows our students to achieve their academic goals." 

- Eileen Farris, UAH Donor Relations Coordinator


Also under the direction of HASBAT's Awards and Scholarships Committee are its Professional and Young Professional of the Year honorees. Members are nominated for the POY and YPOY awards by their peers - other members of HASBAT. The winner in each category is then recognized at the Huntsville Association of Technical Societies (HATS) annual POY dinner.

"I could not thank you enough for your generosity with the HASBAT scholarship. This award made it possible for me to continue my education and support my son!"

 - Cherish Croft, 2015-2016 Scholarship Recipient
