American Hotel and Lodging Educational Foundation (AH&LEF)
Baccalaureate students will receive $2,000, and associate's students will receive $1,000. All awards are offered annually and are non-renewable.
The number of awards offered varies annually. In 2015, 41 scholarships were awarded.
In 2008, AH&LEF created a scholarship exclusively for incoming freshman to encourage enrollment in hospitality-related undergraduate programs and attract more students to the lodging industry. The program is being funded from scholarship monies set aside from AH&LEF's last major capital giving fundraising initiative, the New Century Campaign. Students are evaluated based on academics, related work experience, extracurricular activities, financial need, honors, and personal attributes. Please note: Preference will be given to high school graduates of the Hospitality & Tourism Management Program (HTMP) or Lodging Management Program (LMP).
All students must apply via the AH&LEF online application. The student need only complete one application to apply for all scholarships for which he/she is eligible. As part of the online application ... sign up for full scholarship deadline information.
