What is an Affiliated School?

The earliest another school review would take place is 2018.  The application will be posted here when it becomes available.

AHLEF-affiliated schools are U.S. colleges or universities with hospitality-related programs who agree to participate in AHLEF's Annual Scholarship Grant Program, as well as promote and co-administer AHLEF scholarships to their students. Due to the extensive application and Board review process, applications for affiliation are only accepted every 3-4 years. AHLEF is limited in the number of schools that it can add to the program based on available funding. Each year, affiliate schools are usually allocated $2,000-$6,000 that they can award to their students who meet a set of minimum eligibility criteria.
