College students must have already completed at least 15 college credits and be enrolled for an additional 15 credits. In addition, they must be currently majoring in a hospitality related field, and are required to maintain at least a 2.50 grade point average (GPA). Scholarships to college students are available to employees or dependents of employees of a NYSH&TA member.
Realizing the challenges of working while achieving an education, the Foundation offers scholarships to full-time and part-time college students majoring in a hospitality related field, who are either working at member properties, or are dependents of employees working at member properties.
Student Scholarship Awards Scholarship recipients who are full-time college students receive $1,500 per semester for a maximum of $6,000. Part-time college students receive $750 per semester for a maximum of $6,000. In the event a part-time student becomes full-time, then the student will be given $1,500 per semester, for a total of $6,000 per student. Scholarship payments begin the semester following the formal presentation of awards and are paid directly to the educational institution.
In addition, the foundation has a scholarship for full-time college students that are entering their senior year. They will receive $1,500 per semester for a maximum of $3,000.
