Hospitality Education Foundation Scholarships

Posted in Uncategorized by hospitalityminnesota on October 12, 2015

The Hospitality Minnesota Education Foundation has been providing scholarships for post secondary students studying hospitality or culinary arts since 2008. The whole process became real a few weeks ago on my favorite job duty of the year, which is “sign the checks” day! The checks are possible because of the generosity of our scholarship donors, who see them as an investment in the future of the industry. This year we awarded scholarships to 36 students for a total of $93,500. That brings the total scholarships awarded since the program started in 2008 to $415,000 to 198 students pursuing careers in hospitality, restaurant management, or culinary arts.

The importance of these investments is particularly apparent right now with the growing shortage of well trained professionals in our kitchens and offices.
