Orlando, Florida, April 2015—San Diego State University has committed to offering scholarships to members of the top three winning teams of the 2015 HTMP International Competition hosted by the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute (AHLEI). The 12th annual competition will be held April 23-25 at the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Florida, and will bring together teams of enthusiastic, motivated high school hospitality students who will demonstrate their skills and knowledge as they compete for scholarships to leading hospitality programs. 

The L. Robert Payne School of Hospitality & Tourism Management at San Diego State University offers two undergraduate hospitality degree programs and has four areas of emphasis in which students can specialize: hotel operations and management, meeting and events operations management, restaurant operations and management, and tribal gaming operations and management. The university has pledged single-year scholarships in the following amounts: For the first-place team, $15,000 per student; for the second-place team, $10,000 per student; and for the third-place team, $5,000 per student.  

The student teams that participate in the annual competition are enrolled in high school programs that use AHLEI’s Hospitality and Tourism Management Program (HTMP) curriculum, which introduces them to the many opportunities available in the hospitality industry and guides them on a career path. 

For more information on the 2015 HTMP International Competition, please contact Shelly Weir, AHLEI’s vice president, domestic sales, at, or visit the competition page on AHLEI’s web site.
