ABA Diversity Scholarship
This scholarship focuses on broadening the number of traditionally underrepresented groups in the management and operation ranks of the transportation, travel and tourism industry. You must be a freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, or graduate student at an accredited University. You must have a declared major or course of study relevant to the travel and tourism industry. Travel and tourism encompass a varying range of professions from accounting to hospitality management and everything in between. In other words, please apply rather than ruling yourself out because of your major. You must demonstrate your diversity (this includes varying cultures, socioeconomic backgrounds, nationality, minorities, age, race, or ethnicity) to evaluators.
The 2024-25 Scholarship season will open Dec. 1, 2023.
