American Indian Alaska Native Tourism Association (AIANTA) Tourism & Hospitality Scholarship
At AIANTA, education is the very heartbeat of our work. That includes developing a sustainable hospitality industry by helping educate future tourism leaders. AIANTA strongly encourages Indigenous students to sustain and strengthen their cultural legacy, while also building their careers in the tourism industry.
AIANTA is proud to offer the Tourism & Hospitality Scholarship, which provides American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian students with financial assistance towards a degree or certificate in hospitality, tourism, recreation, culinary arts or related fields.
Each year, AIANTA awards three individuals who have met all scholarship application criteria. Students are awarded $500 per semester (fall and spring semester only). Each student can earn a maximum award of $1,000 over two semesters.
Checks are made payable to the college/university and distributed/mailed to the financial aid/cashiers department of the institution the student attends.
Applicants must be of American Indian, Alaska Native, or Native Hawaiian descent (student must show documentation) and must be a high school senior or a student accepted into an accredited higher education institution at the time of application. Must submit a letter of acceptance from a college/university or technical/vocational institution and must be enrolled as a part-time or full-time student.
Scholarships are available for undergraduate and graduate students only and must be used for books and/or tuition.
