CCT: Tourism Scholarships

Tourism Scholarships

Three scholarships are available to Connecticut residents pursuing degrees in hospitality, travel or tourism at accredited college and universities.  The Connecticut Tourism Industry Scholarship Grants are administered by the Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourism (CCT), and the Connecticut Scholarship is administered by Tourism Cares.
The Connecticut Tourism Industry Scholarship Grants are named for two respected tourism leaders and are funded by the generous contributions of the Connecticut tourism industry.  The Richard B. Combs Hospitality Scholarship Grant, a $1,000 grant, and the Walter Schoenknecht Tourism & Travel Scholarship Grant, a $1,000 grant, are awarded annually.
Tourism Cares offers a scholarship resulting from the Connecticut tourism industry's support of the National Tourism Foundation.  Recipients of the Connecticut Scholarship are invited to attend the annual National Tour Association Convention.
