Exciting scholarship news at the Tisch Center! At the 2019 NYU International Hospitality Industry Investment Conference, the Center announced that beginning in Fall 2019, a new universal scholarship program will be launched that will award $10,000 to all students entering the Tisch Center's graduate degree programs. This scholarship is available for students in the MS in Hospitality Industry Studies, the MS in Tourism Management and the MS in Event Management. This initiative is being financed through industry members who sponsor the NYU International Hospitality Industry Investment Conference each year and an endowment that was created with funds directly contributed by them. Total scholarship money awarded in the first years is expected to range from $600,000 up to $1,000,000, depending upon enrollment, and is expected to grow over time. Additional need- and merit-based scholarships will remain in place for students who qualify.
Associate Dean Nicolas Graf explains that “in its mission to educate future leaders in the hotel, travel, tourism, and event management space, the NYUSPS Tisch Center of Hospitality recognizes the need to make higher education of this caliber accessible and affordable to students pursuing a degree in our graduate programs”. All accepted students who register for courses will be awarded the scholarship in their first semester. The scholarship will be disbursed in the student's Bursar account, and can be used for tuition payments only. For more information about Tisch center scholarships, please click here.
