SARASOTA, FL – February 11, 2022 – Miles Partnership announced the opening of the application period for its annual scholarship program to the Southeast Tourism Society Marketing College®.

The 2022 application period for the Miles Scholarship Program for STS Marketing College will be open through Friday, March 18, 2022, at 5 p.m. ET.
Marketing College® is a continuing education program that is offered annually as a one-week intensive session. During the program, students will attend lectures and discussion groups, and have one-of-a-kind networking opportunities throughout the week. Courses are designed for both new and established tourism professionals and consist of an array of industry-specific topics that include market research, product development, economic impact, advocacy and branding. Marketing College® professors are seasoned industry members from across the U.S. who bring not only expertise, but real-world knowledge to the classroom. Courses will be held at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, from June 5-10, 2022.
Students who complete all three years of Marketing College® (not necessarily in consecutive years, though STS does recommend it) will receive and be presented with a Travel Marketing Professional (TMP) certification at a special graduation ceremony at the STS annual meeting, STS Connections.
Miles is proud to be the Presenting Sponsor of Marketing College® and looks forward to awarding scholarships to a diverse group of tourism professionals to attend Marketing College® and continue their career development.
