Deadline Extended for TCF Scholarship
January 21, 2004 – The application deadline for the Travelers Conservation Foundation Sustainable Tourism Scholarship has been extended until April 15, 2004. The annual scholarship, which will be awarded for the first time in 2004, is administered in partnership with the National Tourism Foundation.

The scholarship is available to graduate students in the tourism field. The successful candidate will be chosen on the basis of academic achievement and the creativity of an essay about practical applications and project ideas in sustainable tourism. Applicants are challenged to think about ways the industry can assist in helping to foster sustainable and responsible growth and use of sites around the globe. The recipient will receive $500 in the fall of 2004 and another $500 in the spring of 2005.

TCF Executive Director Bruce Beckham, CTP, announced the creation of the scholarship in November. "The Travelers Conservation Foundation’s mission is to be the tourism industry’s vehicle for encouraging responsible conservation, protection and use of the world’s natural, cultural and historic treasures," said Beckham. "This new scholarship is a logical addition to our philanthropic programs, all of which are designed to ‘give back’ to the sites and places which are, in fact our products."

Applications should be submitted directly to the Travelers Conservation Foundation. Click here to view an application form and the 2004 essay topic.
