As the CEO of a global company, I know this world needs more candidates who exhibit the type of strength, integrity, dependability and tenacity that is core to those who serve. It is our intention to help educate these men and women so they are well-prepared for their next phase in life.
West Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) September 19, 2017
Today, HotelPlanner proudly announces the launch of the HotelPlanner Scholarship Program, designed to provide financial assistance to veterans of the United States military, along with the spouse/partner and children of U.S. military veterans, who are pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree related to technology.
HotelPlanner recognizes the incomparable commitment made by the brave men and women of the military who fight to keep the country safe. As such, it is committed to support those individuals who choose to pursue a college degree and are in need of additional funds to help defray the costs of higher education.
As the leader in booking group and individual hotel travel online, technology is at the heart of everything HotelPlanner does and critical to the success of its business. Similarly, companies, governments and military operations around the world are increasingly dependent on those who understand and work with technology. This scholarship is intended to grow the pool of qualified individuals by helping to make their education in technology a reality.
“This scholarship is just one small way for us to give back to the men and women of our military who make such an extraordinary sacrifice to protect us. As the CEO of a global company, I know this world needs more candidates who exhibit the type of strength, integrity, dependability and tenacity that is core to those who serve. It is our intention to help educate these men and women so they are well-prepared for their next phase in life,” said Tim Hentschel, Co-Founder and CEO of HotelPlanner and Meetings.com.
A $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to ten recipients, twice per year, and will be based on a number of criteria including, financial need, U.S. military service (or the spouse/partner/child of someone who has served), acceptance to an accredited undergraduate or graduate degree program related to technology, and an interest in a career related to technology exhibited through a personal essay. HotelPlanner expects the size of the scholarship to grow over time.
