In 2002 TIANB decided to develop a scholarship program to help students pursuing an education and a career in tourism. TIANB recognizes the importance of the education and training of our future industry leaders and has therefore instituted this scholarship program to assist deserving students with their college education. TIANB awards two $1000.00 scholarships to two students annually to offset post-secondary education expenses and encourage further education in hospitality and tourism.
The scholarship process begins in January of each year and ends in April
The Pioneer Legacy Tourism Scholarship enables students to pursue post-secondary education leading to a career in the Tourism Industry. A precursor to TIANB, the NBRFAF donated the funds to establish the original scholarship. Now called the Pioneer Legacy Tourism Scholarship, the award honours tourism and hospitality pioneers with the NBRFA who established the scholarship fund. The award consists of $1,000 offered to one student annually, to offset education expenses at a post-secondary institution within the Province of New Brunswick.
