During the 43rd Annual NYU Hospitality Industry Investment Conference, held at the New York Marriott Marquis, Nicolas Graf, Jonathan M. Tisch Chaired Professor and associate dean, announced two new full scholarships that will be created through the support of Loews Hotels & Co and its chairman and CEO Jonathan Tisch. The Loews Hotels Scholarship and the Jonathan M. Tisch Scholarship will be bestowed annually upon two graduates of Howard University and/or other Historically Black Colleges or Universities (HBCU), who seek to pursue a master’s degree at the NYU School of Professional Studies Jonathan M. Tisch Center of Hospitality. The students who will receive this tuition assistance will be known as the Loews Hotels Scholar and the Jonathan M. Tisch Scholar, respectively.

Jon Tisch, who earlier this year made a transformational gift to the Tisch Center of Hospitality to establish the Jonathan M. Tisch Endowed Chair, is a philanthropist who is a staunch supporter of higher education and a true believer in its ability to empower individuals from all walks of life to reach their full potential. “Providing the means for students from historically underrepresented groups to acquire the knowledge and skills they need to lead successful careers, is the greatest investment we can make in their future and in the future of this industry,” he said.

The NYU School of Professional Studies Jonathan M. Tisch Center of Hospitality, celebrating more than 25 years of academic excellence, is a leading center for the study of hospitality, travel, and tourism. Founded in 1995, the Tisch Center was established in response to the growing need for hospitality and tourism undergraduate and graduate education. Its cutting-edge curricula attract bright, motivated students who seek to become leaders in their fields.

Through its undergraduate degree in hotel and tourism management, its graduate degrees in hospitality industry studies, tourism management, and event management; a plethora of Professional Pathways programs; and its world-renowned hospitality investment conference, students gain the knowledge and the skill sets that enable them to manage change, to communicate, to thrive in complex work environments, and to advance the businesses of hospitality, travel, and tourism. The Tisch Center recently launched the Hospitality Innovation Hub (HI Hub) that will foster entrepreneurship and creative solutions for the industries it serves. The state-of-the-art facilities offer students, start-ups, established industry partners, and investors opportunities to learn, discover, innovate, and invest.
