Learning that takes place in the classroom is valuable and an important part of receiving a good education, yet a lot of important skills can only be learned outside of the classroom.
Technical skills and people skills are critical attributes that one must have in order to achieve success in the hospitality industry. While academic drive is important, it is also critical for students to have the drive to learn about the day-to-day operation of the hospitality and service industries in order to truly prepare for their careers.
This scholarship seeks to support underrepresented minority students who are interested in pursuing careers in the hospitality industry and have already started gaining real-world experience.
