The International Food, Wine & Travel Writers AssnTM sponsors an annual Hospitality Education Scholarship Award that is given to a deserving student in the hospitality, culinary, tourism or viticulture-enology fields. The award is funded by a combination of budgeted IFWTWA dollars and voluntary member donations.
One of the specific purposes of IFWTWA is to provide financial assistance for students preparing themselves for employment in the food, wine, travel and hostelry industries, and to provide funds to those educational organizations furthering the development and progress of those industries. The IFWTWA Hospitality Education Scholarship is designed to serve that purpose of the organization and serve the industries IFWTWA supports.
IFWTWA members can and do make a difference in hospitality careers. We further a student’s education in the industry and give our members the assurance that 100 percent of their contributions go directly toward the educational expenses of the awardee and not toward any administrative costs.
