Hospitality Scholarships

After all the time she spent in the Plaza, Eloise probably considered a career in hospitality administration and management at some point. You don’t have to grow up in a hotel to want to develop or manage one but if you like interacting with people, traveling and doing work that has a true impact on the community around you, majoring in hospitality is definitely for you. And talk about entering a growing field: The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts the hospitality industry will grow 17 percent between 2004 and 2014, adding more than 2.2 million new jobs ranging from bellhops to executives to the work force.

As hands-on majors go, hospitality is definitely high on the list; by graduation day, hospitality majors have often completed multiple internships – lots of schools require them as part of the curriculum – to prepare students for the industry’s rigors. Of course, these additional requirements can mean additional costs and when paying for school is hard enough, students need all the financial aid they can get.

Schools like the City College of San Francisco and Purdue award hospitality scholarships specifically to majors but if your college doesn’t have university-based hospitality scholarships, consider checking out what local companies and professional organizations (Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International, the American Hotel and Lodging Educational Foundation, NEWH, etc.) have to offer. Hospitality students may even qualify for business, marketing and communications scholarships, as these classes are integral components of the major.

The hospitality scholarship opportunities below were just a few we pulled from the Scholarships.com database but for more, conduct a free scholarship search today.
