In 1991, BHI teamed up with the nationally renowned School of Hospitality Management at Florida International University to provide two-year scholarship awards to upper division (Junior and Senior) students with solid academic credentials and strong Visitor Industry work experience. In 2001, BHI initiated a new program to award scholarships to tourism/hospitality management students attending Miami Dade College. In 2002, BHI created new scholarship opportunities for Johnson & Wales University students enrolled in the hospitality or culinary arts programs.  The year 2010 solidified the partnership with BHI and St. Thomas University in establishing scholarships for Tourism Hospitality Management degrees.  Scholarship awards generally include tuition, books and academic advisement. BHI students are required to complete a mandatory internship with a local tourism employer and to work in the Visitor Industry while pursing their college degree. Corporate partners in the Hospitality Industry fund BHI scholarships.
