The Miles Scholarship Program for Southeast Tourism Society's Marketing College is now open! Miles will award 14 scholarships for the 2024 session, selecting one tourism industry professional in each of the 14 STS member regions: Alabama, Arkansas, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. The 2024 application period will be open through Friday, March 15, 2024, at 5 p.m. ET.

Marketing College is a premier one-week intensive education program designed for both new and established tourism professionals. During the program, students will attend lectures and discussion groups, and have one-of-a-kind networking opportunities throughout the week. Courses focus on industry-specific topics such as 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 2-7, 2024.

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 we’re eager to support the growth and development of a diverse group of tourism professionals through this opportunity. Scholarship recipients will be selected by a committee of industry professionals to ensure scholarships are awarded in an equitable and inclusive manner.

Applications are due by Friday, March 15, 2024, at 5 p.m. ET., and recipients will be announced by Friday, March 29, 2024. Applications can be submitted at https://forms.gle/A6KUZKtsHa1L3yXN8.
