Applications are open year round.

Are you a parent that has been working in the food & beverage, hospitality, or culinary industry (including suppliers and distributors) for at least five years? If so, your child has an opportunity to receive the BCHF Industry Scholarship Award if they have a GPA of 2.5 or higher on the latest transcript and are planning to study any hospitality diploma or degree including hotel/restaurant management, bar tending, sommelier, or culinary institutions. Your BCHF created this award to support families in the hospitality industry.

NOTE: Should you receive an award from the BC Hospitality Foundation, as a condition to your acceptance of this award, you agree that neither the BC Hospitality Foundation nor any of its officers, directors, employees or agents shall be responsible for any and all costs and expenses (other than, but not specifically limited to, tuition and other items identified in writing by the grantor of this scholarship). Should you receive an award from the BC Hospitality Foundation, permission is granted to use your name for publicity purposes.

To enter, you will need:

  • A 400 word essay on why you want to work in the hospitality industry
  • Academic transcripts
  • Two (2) reference letters from non-family members

The BCHF will make three $1000.00 Industry Scholarships available every year.
