The Maryland Hotel Lodging Association is now accepting applications for multiple $1,500 scholarships to be awarded through the Maryland Tourism Education Foundation again this year. MHLA is able to award these scholarships due to the past success of our Annual Golf Outing through all who sponsored, contributed or participated at that event. We are proud to be giving back to our industry and awarding these scholarships to deserving individuals, who plan to continue their careers in this industry and are employed by our members.
The application can be found by clicking here.
