Application deadline for tourism-related scholarship is approaching

The deadline to apply is Jan. 31.

The application deadline for Alaska Travel Industry Association Foundation’s 2020 education scholarship is coming at the end of the month.

The ATIA Foundation provides one-year scholarships to students enrolled, or who intend to enroll, in a program of study related to a career in tourism. Eligible high school and college students from across Alaska are encouraged to apply.

The deadline to apply is Jan. 31.

Scholarship funds are raised from ATIA members and member businesses. ATIA Foundation scholarships are awarded to qualified applicants based on donor requirements, with preference given to field of study, sector, previous tourism employment or geographic area.

“As Alaska’s second largest private sector employer, the tourism industry — and our state’s more than 2 million guests — rely on skilled employees in fields ranging from culinary arts and hospitality management to finance and marketing,” said Sarah Leonard, President and CEO of ATIA and ATIA Foundation board member, in a release. “The ATIA Foundation scholarship program grows our industry by developing the next generation of tourism leaders.”

In 2019, the ATIA Foundation awarded $25,000 to 16 individuals, with scholarships ranging between $500 and $2,500. Information about the ATIA Foundation and scholarship application materials are available on ATIA’s website,
