The ALIS Legacy

The American Hotel & Lodging Educational Foundation (AHLEF) has benefited from ALIS since its inception in 2002 and these conference proceeds have been pivotal to the success of its programs.
  • Scholarships - Since its inception, AHLEF has invested approximately US$14 million in scholarships to hospitality management students to help them earn a degree and get a foothold in our industry. Specifically, ALIS funding has resulted in scholarships for 1,569 students in 129 universities. This year, the Foundation has increased funding by more than 50%, and for the first time will exceed a million dollars in annual scholarship funding!
  • Industry Research - The Foundation has granted more than US$3.6 million to provide vital funding to help us tell our industry story. AHLEF will continue underwriting the important research that generates the data we use to make strategic decisions and promote the industry.
  • Career Development Initiatives - Since 2003, more than US$4 million has been invested in our workforce pipeline to keep it filled with new talent. Within the last year, the Foundation embarked on three new exciting initiatives, a national hospitality apprenticeship program, which will help more than 2,250 apprentices in the hospitality sector find managerial careers in the industry over the next five years; grants to train 1,000 opportunity youth for long-term hospitability careers; and a ground-breaking Cost Free College program that allows current industry employees at more than 1,500 hotels nationwide obtain a college degree at no cost to them.
