Arkansas Tourism and Hospitality Education Foundation Scholarship

Every year, the Arkansas Hospitality Association, along with the assistance of the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF), offers a co-branded scholarship to individuals who are interested in pursuing a hospitality-related degree.  Scholarship monies range from $500-$4,000 and are based on criteria included in the application. The proceeds from the annual Arkansas Govenor’s Conference on Tourism Silent and Live Auctions are donated to the Arkansas Tourism Development Foundation, to help fund the scholarships that are given out annually to students pursuing hospitality industry degrees. Without these auctions, this scholarship could not be the success that it is today!
