23 Feb 2019
The International SPA Association (ISPA) Foundation is now accepting applications for the 2019 Mary Tabacchi Scholarship.

This scholarship will be awarded to a junior, senior or graduate student enrolled full-time in a bachelor’s or master’s programme pursuing a career in spa management, leadership or entrepreneurship.

“ISPA is proud to support the Mary Tabacchi Scholarship once again as a new generation of spa professionals look to enter the industry,” said ISPA president Lynne McNees. “As the spa industry continues to grow, professionals entering the industry are met with unlimited possibilities and exciting challenges.”

The scholarship was created in 2006 and later named in honour of Mary Tabacchi, PhD, RD, Associate Professor, Hospitality Facilities and Operations at Cornell University.

Tabacchi is a pioneer in spa education and mentor to many in the spa industry.

Applications are being accepted through 5 April, 2019 and the ISPA Foundation will present the award at the 29th annual ISPA Conference & Expo at The Venetian in Las Vegas, from 11-13 September, 2019.

The recipient will receive US$5,000 to offset their education expenses, a complimentary registration, travel stipend and hotel accommodations to attend the 2019 ISPA Conference & Expo, a one-year ISPA student membership and will be assigned a one-year mentor to help navigate their career aspirations.
