Last year, AAHOA partnered with the University of Houston Conrad Hilton College of Hotel & Restaurant Management to create the AAHOA Student Assistantship & Scholarship Endowment. Hotel icon Conrad Hilton founded Hilton College in 1969; it has been consistently ranked among the top hospitality programs in the world. More than 80 percent of students have jobs lined up upon graduation. The endowment awarded six students $50,000, the maximum available each academic year.
