2019 scholarship recipients

Helping to educate the next generation of hospitality professionals is the essential work of AHLA Foundation, and the most tangible, valuable benefit of the contributions our members make to the Foundation. 
Students are empowered. Careers are launched. The workforce is assured. 


"By awarding me your scholarship, you are lightening much of the financial pressure I feel as a working student. I will certainly continue to work hard and will take full advantage of the time this scholarship will award me, which is the most valuable to me. Thank you again for the time to focus on my learning process. I hope to one day also be able to give back to students like myself."

-Audrey Nieves, 2019 AHLA Foundation Scholar
