About Us

About the Scholarship Foundation:

For more than two decades the Scholarship Foundation for Hotel and Tourism Studies has subsidized the studies of over 500 local students, initially focusing on traditional hotel and business management skills. Later the scope of scholarships available was broadened to include culinary arts and casino management, as well as other skill sets necessary to run a contemporary hospitality-related business. The complete effort has resulted in a changing of the guard at many hosteleria and dining establishments on the Island, with a new generation of Puerto Rican Foundation alumni stepping up to the plate to assume key positions in our hospitality industry.

The Scholarship Foundation counts on the donations and support from many companies and individuals in Puerto Rico. In addition, many fundraising events are celebrated to support the scholarships. Our goal is simple and focused – dynamic, well-educated Puerto Ricans heading the Puerto Rico hotel and tourism industry and the diverse businesses it supports.
