Students: Can You Use a $5,000 Scholarship?

The Greater Midwest Chapter

Students interested in being considered for the new GMC PCMA Student Scholarships must apply by Jan. 19 to be considered. Two individual scholarships of $5,000 will be awarded to Student Members of the Greater Midwest Chapter-PCMA who major in Hospitality.

The tuition-based scholarships will be awarded for the 2014-2015 academic year. Funds will be distributed directly to the student’s college or university.

Complete and submit the application by Jan. 19.

The Scholarship Committee will select and award the two Student Scholarships at our Annual Awards Luncheon on Feb. 4.

If you know of any hospitality students who might be interested, please contact Bill Martin, Chair of the Student Membership Committee, or Hilary Rosenthal, Chair, Student Scholarship Committee.

The GMC PCMA Chapter strongly believes that investing in our student members will not only enhance their involvement in our local chapter, but create future leaders in the years to come. Supporting that belief, the GMC Executive Committee recently increased the scholarship amounts from $2,500 to $5,000 each.
