The Scholarship Program

The Canadian Hospitality Foundation is very proud to offer annual scholarships for students across Canada wishing to pursue a career in the hospitality, foodservice and tourism industry.  We are Canada’s largest industry-driven source for scholarships and our goal is to encourage and reward the best and the brightest Canadian students in order that they will continue their commitment to this dynamic and growing industry.

Each year universities and colleges are selected to participate in Canadian Hospitality Foundation (CHF) Scholarship Program.  Each school receives a scholarship package that suits the programs, which they offer. The participating school provides the student with the criteria and scholarship application (the criteria is also available here on our website for your reference under each of the categories you see listed in the menu bar).

Once complete, the scholarship application must be submitted to the college or university directly with two exceptions: the John A. Rothschild, Applied Degree Scholarship and the Metro Toronto Convention Centre Event Management Scholarship. Both applications are available for download under the Applied Hospitality Degree and Event Management section of the menu bar. Once complete the applications are to be sent directly to the Canadian Hospitality Foundation.

Please read each of the criteria and requirements carefully. Only applications that are complete and have fulfilled all the specified criteria on the application will be considered. No fax copies or emails will be accepted.

Remember we are the Canadian Hospitality Foundation and therefore ONLY Canadian Citizens and Landed Immigrants are able to apply.


Any university or college wishing to be part of the Canadian Hospitality Foundation Scholarship Program is required to send a letter with your request to the:
