No. As a part of the scholarship program experience, all recipients will stay in the same NAHB designated hotel room block. NAHB will cover the room and tax fees for the 4-night hotel stay (February 18-21, 2019).

How does the airfare work?

NAHB will reimburse the scholarship recipient up to $600 for roundtrip economy airfare. Airfare add-ons, such as extra leg room or early-bird check-in fees are not eligible for reimbursement.
