The Annual Tourism Scholarship Auction, sponsored by Destinations of New York State (DONYS) in partnership with the New York State Tourism Industry Association (NYSTIA), funds the Travel, Tourism, Hospitality & Culinary College Scholarship Fund for NYS-based students who will one day become our industry leaders. This year, the scholarship fund will award five $2,000 scholarships to tourism, hospitality or culinary students in our NYS colleges and universities.
Our scholarship committee has rounded up travel packages for the 2018 auction, with a combined value of over $29,000. There are over 35 silent auction items and 29 live auction items from every region of New York State.
