Every year, our tourism community comes together to honor some of the exceptional standouts in hospitality and tourism and support the students who are studying to join this dynamic field that employs more than 27,000 people in our area.

To date, the Tourism Leadership Council has awarded more than $100,000 in scholarships to students who are studying to pursue careers in tourism and hospitality. Scholarships have ranged from $500 - $3,000, and have gone to students from Georgia Southern University, University of Georgia, Savannah Technical College, Ogeechee Technical College, University of South Carolina-Beaufort, and other area universities. If you are interested in finding out more about the TLC Scholarship, click here for further information about eligibility and application requirements.

The scholarships are funded through various fundraisers throughout the year, including raffle ticket sales at our monthly TLC Connection Luncheons, the TLC Golf Tournament, and through private donations. Donations to the scholarship fund are tax-deductible: contact us if you would like to make a contribution.
