Grants & Scholarships

EFTI has established numerous small grants and scholarships for students and faculty members to enhance tourism initiatives in the Institute as well as in the Department of Tourism, Recreation and Sport Management. Request for applications along with the criteria for funding and associated deadlines are periodically announced by the EFTI. Currently, the following funding programs are offered and only students in the department are eligible to apply:

  • Scholarships for Students Majoring in Tourism

Undergraduate Student Scholarships and Graduate Student Scholarships

Each scholarship and application will be solicited and reviewed as part of the College of Health & Human Performance (CHHP) annual scholarship program. Scholarships will be awarded at the CHHP Scholarship Awards Luncheon. Offered once per year.

The grants and scholarships are available largely due to the generosity of several individuals that have created endowments. In addition, the income from the endowments also provides valuable resources for numerous other programs to support research, education and training as well as general operations. Currently, the following endowments have provided the financial resources and EFTI is enormously appreciative of our benefactors:

  • Ogden Entertainment of Florida Program Enhancement Fund
  • Hal and Lois Herman Endowment
  • Eric Friedheim Foundation Endowment

The grants and scholarship program is extremely beneficial for faculty and students. If you are interested to support tourism-related research, education and training, an excellent opportunity exists to financially support this program with an endowment.
