The Hospitality Industry Education Foundation (HIEF) awards thousands of dollars of scholarships each year to students pursuing a career in the hospitality industry. These scholarships enable the next generation of leaders to meet the growing need for a skilled workforce in the hospitality industry.

Many of these scholarships are supported and funded by industry partners and many are given in the name of industry heroes who have since passed away. Please contact Victor Martinez, Education Director (, if you are interested in funding a scholarship in your company's name or to establish a memorial scholarship.

HIEF scholarships are also funded in part through a matching program administered by the National Restaurant Association Education Foundation. With this program, HIEF is able to double the amount of scholarships it can offer every year. For more information, visit
