The Tourism Industry Partners Invitational Golf Tournament was established 11 years ago to foster future generations of tourism professionals through scholarships and awards raised primarily through the annual golf tournament. With the goal of placing the funds directly into the hands of the students and programs, $60K in scholarships and awards are distributed to students and programs on an annual basis.
The Partners in Tourism – TIP Society is very excited to be collaborating with go2HR to connect with multiple colleges and universities across the province seeking students who will benefit from our assistance to achieve their “Last Lap” of accreditation. The society acknowledges go2HR’s role in connecting the industry to tourism programs and students and will be working on a multi-year approach to ensure funds are distributed across the province in disciplines including adventure, culinary, hospitality and tourism, while also supporting distinct groups such as students with special needs.
We have a long standing relationship with VCC where we have annually provided funds through bursaries directly benefiting its students as well as supporting student programs. Since the founding of our relationship, $320K will be distributed to students enrolled at VCC. The funds will be dispersed through the following categories:
- Students participating in Skills Canada competitions – $100K (2014 – 2018)
- Entrance Awards – $100K (2014 – 2018)
- Full Scholarships – $100K (2014 – 2018)
- Annual Student Awards – $20K (2014 – 2018)
This year’s recipients of the TIP Annual Student Awards honoured are:
