This opportunity will be offered to at least one junior (or more) in the School of Hotel Administration (SHA). Successful applicants should demonstrate an understanding of the spirit of Phil Miller, the importance of connecting and giving back (financial need is not a criterion). The selection committee will consist of SHA faculty, staff and alumni. The successful applicants will be given an opportunity to attend one of several CHS events, being assigned an alumni mentor while they are attending the event who will be responsible to help introduce them to other alumni (as well as get to know them). These students will then return to campus and share their experience and contacts with other student hotelies at a Collegiate Chapter sponsored “pizza” event.
The money from this endowment will be used to pay only for the expenses to have the student attend the event (which would be transportation, accommodations, food, registration).
Recipients of the Philippus Miller III Award become known as a Phil Legacy
