The IGLTA Foundation is offering five scholarships to attend the 31st Annual Global Convention of the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association in Madrid this May.
Now in its second year, the Building Bridges Scholarship program was created to support the next generation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender travel professionals.
This year’s program will provide all-expense-paid trips to Madrid including conference registration for three hospitality/tourism students, one individual representing a small travel business, and one individual representing a destination or event in an emerging LGBT market.
Scholarship recipients will participate in a mentoring and orientation program on May 7; attend the convention May 8-10, where they will attend educational sessions and meet fellow travel professionals; and take in the sights of Madrid on May 11. Applications are due March 14.
The program is open to applicants worldwide. Last year’s recipients hailed from Brazil, Liberia, Peru, Suriname and the U.S.
