The Alabama-Mississippi-Tennessee Rural Tourism Conference will be awarding six scholarships this year to attend the annual conference in Sweetwater, Tennessee on the dates of October 18-20, 2021.
Each scholarship will cover the conference registration, travel to and from the conference and two-nights accommodations at the Holiday Inn & Suites or Quality Inn in Sweetwater, Tennessee. Each state will have two scholarships available to give out to individuals who would like to attend but whose organizations may not have the budget to allow them to attend. The Mississippi Scholarships are dedicated to the memory of Ron Walker, one of the original organizers of the conference.
If you are interested in applying for this scholarship, please fill out the Alabama Scholarship Form or the Mississippi Scholarship Form or the Tennessee Scholarship Form, and submit a short description of why you would like to attend the Alabama-Mississippi-Tennessee Rural Tourism Conference and how it would benefit you and your organization. Also, give a brief description of what rural tourism aspects your organization promotes.
You can also nominate someone other than yourself for this scholarship by filling out the appropriate information on the scholarship form and submit in writing why you think this person should receive this scholarship and how this conference would benefit their continuing education.
We look forward to a successful conference this year with a great roster of speakers on various subjects that apply to rural tourism.
