Big Picture Conferences Launches National Scholarship Award
Big Picture Conferences (BPC) has been instrumental in supporting education in the Canadian Hotel and Hospitality industry over the past 23 years and it has contributed well over $1.2 million dollars towards programs and student scholarships for the leaders of tomorrow.
We are excited to announce the 2019 winners of a brand-new scholarship fund the "Canadian Hotel Investment Conference Scholarship Award".
Congratulations goes to Ryerson University, Ted Rogers School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, Michelle Vuong and Abbigale McCarty.
About the Award:
As part of our long-term commitment to education and the development of well-trained hospitality industry professionals, BPC has established a “collaborative” scholarship of $25,000 that will be awarded annually to a recognized education institution AND two enrolled students at the same institution. This award was created to support upper year students (5th semester or higher) who are pursuing a career in the Hospitality field and who are enrolled in any Hospitality, Tourism, Hotel Management stream, school, diploma, program etc. at a recognized Canadian college or university.
The $25,000 cash scholarship will be divided up as follows:
- $15,000 will be allocated to a Canadian university or college towards student learning opportunities at the discretion of the department advisor.
- $10,000 will be allocated directly for two "full-time" students who are currently enrolled in the same Canadian university or college selected to receive the $15,000 fund. Winning students will each receive $5000 and receive complimentary passes and one night’s accommodation to attend the Canadian Hotel Investment Conference (May 13-14, 2019 | Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel) and accept their award on stage on May 14.
