Conference Scholarships

The Alabama-Mississippi-Tennessee Rural Tourism Conference will be awarding three scholarships this year to attend the annual conference in Gadsden, Alabama on the dates of October 22-24, 2018.

The Mississippi Scholarship is dedicated to Ron Walker, one of the original organizers of the conference. Each scholarship will cover the conference registration, travel to and from the conference and two-nights accommodations at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites in Gadsden, Alabama. Each state will have one scholarship available to give out to someone who would like to attend but whose organization may not have the budget to allow them to attend.

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 community 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.
