TLC Scholarship

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 Savannah Technical College, University of South Carolina-Beaufort, Ogeechee Technical College, Georgia Southern University, and other area schools.
