Any Clark County high school student who is passionate about pursuing a career in the hospitality and culinary arts industries is invited to attend the informational meeting. At the meeting, students will have the opportunity to hear from other students currently in the scholarship program, network with leading food and beverage executives and discuss internship opportunities. Applications for the scholarship will also be available at this time. Any student interested in attending the meeting is asked to RSVP to [email protected] or call 702-254-5704 by Jan. 6.
The Foundation is currently seeking applicants for its annual college scholarship program. Qualified high school students are awarded up to $10,000 per year to cover tuition, books and fees to attend an accredited four-year college of their choice during the academic year following their graduation. Students must plan to obtain a Bachelor’s Degree in hotel management or food and beverage programs. Each student must graduate with a cumulative grade point average of 2.75 and demonstrate the personal dedication necessary to pursue a career in the hospitality industry, but lack the financial means to achieve their goals. In addition to the financial support, recipients also receive a mentor from the Foundation’s ranks for constant guidance and opportunities for internships throughout the student’s college career. Applications are available online at www.ecflv.org and must be submitted by Feb.10.
