These mini-grants become available as the hospitality industry raises funds for this mini-grant program. These monies are available on a first-come first-served basis until the funds are exhausted for that period. These monies are intended for students who are new enrollments in the SPC Hospitality and Tourism Program. These mini-grants are not available to students who are currently (or have been) enrolled in the SPC Hospitality and Tourism Program. This program is offered periodically as funds become available, and thus are not offered each semester. The funds cover the tuition cost of one hospitality course (HFT prefix) up to three credit hours. These mini-grants will only cover in-state tuition and thus excludes out-of-state tuition. DON'T DELAY - CALL TODAY AS FUNDS ARE LIMITED.
