GIVE THE GIFT OF HOSPITALITY EDUCATION

Did you know that hospitality education has a positive impact that goes beyond the personal success of students? Hospitality and tourism education contributes to reducing poverty, and generating inclusive and sustainable economic growth, as well as developing transferable skills and knowledge for the future. Aspiring students who can’t afford a hospitality education on their own could miss out on the chance to lead a lucrative career in hospitality and give back to the world later.

Help us deliver scholarships and honorary loans to students in financial need, thereby supporting equal opportunity access to hospitality education and giving deserving students a chance for an international career in the fields of hospitality and tourism.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SCHOLARSHIP AND A HONORARY LOAN?

Scholarships give the student a fixed amount of money, without the obligation to repay the funds.

WILL I MEET MY SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS?

The Foundation strives to create opportunities for donors and scholarship recipients to meet. We understand that it gives donors profound personal satisfaction to meet the students whose education they made possible, and the students are often eager to thank and meet their benefactors.

MAY I HAVE INPUT INTO THE SELECTION OF A RECIPIENT?

Scholarship donors do not usually have input into the selection of a recipient; however, they may suggest base criteria to be used when selecting the recipient.

MAY I NAME A SCHOLARSHIP?

Yes, a donor may choose to name his scholarship. Scholarships may be named after the donor, company, organization or to honor parents, professors or other important people.
