Scholarship Fund

SCHOLARSHIP FUND: Help support the education of hospitality and tourism students!

Countless students are pursuing a career in travel and tourism in New Mexico and they need your help! Help contribute to the success of these students by donating to New Mexico Hospitality Association’s endowed Hospitality and Tourism Scholarship Fund powered by Albuquerque Community Foundation.

Why donate?

Did you know 1 in 12 jobs in New Mexico is supported by tourism?  This industry is growing, which means we need the workforce to help sustain this growth.  Your donation impacts the life of a New Mexican student who has a passion for hospitality.  The last two years, this event served as the major fundraiser for the Hospitatilty and Tourism Scholarship Fund, powered by the Albuquerque Community Foundation. And this year, we will award the first scholarship during the ceremony.
