Funding your future in tourism, hospitality and culinary arts since 1998.
Since its founding in 1998, the Tourism Leadership Council has awarded more than $100,000 in scholarships to students in Savannah and the surrounding areas, in amounts ranging from $500-$3,000. Our scholarships are paid directly to the student, so you can apply the funds to any school-related costs, including housing, supplies and other living expenses. In previous years, scholarships 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.
