Since 2001, the Foundation has awarded $310,000 in scholarships to more than 150 individuals. Past scholarships have benefited Alaskan students pursuing their career in tourism from Ketchikan to Nome and Kodiak to Tok with a special Rural Award benefiting villages and small communities. During the 2016 award cycle, the ATIA Foundation granted $25,000 in awards in support of students’ professional development and education advancements in Alaska’s tourism industry. ATIA is also excited to announce that during the Foundation Scholarship Luncheon at the 2016 ATIA Annual Convention in October, $17,510 in scholarship funds was raised through the generosity of our members. Thank you!
