We are pleased that you are interested in applying for a Department of Hospitality, Hotel Management and Tourism Scholarship! Your candidacy speaks highly of your academic success and commitment. Generous donors who have created the scholarships did so with the intention of supporting outstanding students like you! Graduate Scholarships available are listed below
Scholarships are available to current HMGT Graduate Students who will be full-time students (at least 9 TAMU credits) for both the Fall 2022 and Spring 2023 semesters. Students who have not yet completed one semester at Texas A&M University (and therefore do not yet have a GPA on record) will not be considered for scholarships. The GPA is one aspect of the selection process, but the thank-you letter, resume and application are also important.
To Apply, Follow the Steps Below:
Download and complete the Graduate Student Scholarship Application Packet. To be considered for a scholarship you will need to:
- a) complete an application form,
- b) write a letter addressed to “Dear Donor” communicating your career direction and the importance and meaning of the scholarship to you,
- c) provide a copy of your resume, and
- d) provide a photograph of yourself for the donor.
Step 2 (Optional)
You will also have the option of providing a brief video that will introduce you to the donor and communicate the importance and meaning of the scholarship to you.
Send your completed packet as a single Word Document file to Koy Moser (by 12:00am on February 28th, 2023), at email@example.com, AGLS 462, (979) 314-2939.
Note that submission of an application signals that if you are a scholarship recipient you will do the following:
- Attend the HMGT Recognition Banquet to receive your award in person (date TBA), if at all possible.
- Write a professional thank-you letter to the donor of the scholarship you receive.
- Assist Mr. Moser with finalizing your application packet for forwarding to the donor if you are chosen to receive a scholarship. You will need to visit Mr. Moser in person to sign the letter to the donor.
