The Fred & Gertrude England Hospitality Education Foundation Professional Development Scholarship Program offers scholarships to New York State Hospitality & Tourism Association (NYSH&TA) member employees for professional development activities. The intent of the program is to provide a scholarship award (50% activity costs up to $1,000) to an employee of a NYSH&TA member property, to improve their knowledge about any subject to support their efforts of professional development in the hospitality industry. This scholarship may be used to cover part of the expenses incurred by the employee so that the burden of individual contributions may be lightened, though not necessarily eliminated. Payments to individuals will be limited to a maximum of $2,000 over a 5 year period.
Applicants will be notified within 45 days of submission.
Scholarship money will be reimbursed upon completion of the program and receipt of documented expenses has been submitted.
Employees of a NYSH&TA member property that have been employed there for at least a year are eligible to apply for this scholarship.
The goal of the Foundation is to have employees choose professional development activities which will benefit both themselves and the member property.
It will be the obligation and the responsibility of the applicant to supply the awards committee information about the activity they wish to pursue. Funds will not be available in advance, but will be reimbursed upon receipt of documented expenses.
Preference for scholarship awards will be given to applications that:
