13th Annual ISPA Foundation Scholarship Opens

The International SPA Association (ISPA) Foundation began accepting applications for the 2019 Mary Tabacchi Scholarship on Friday, February 8, 2019. This scholarship will be awarded to a junior, senior, or graduate student enrolled full-time in a bachelor’s or master’s program 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 looks to enter the industry,” says 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 honor of Mary Tabacchi, PhD, RD, Associate Professor, Hospitality Facilities and Operations at Cornell University. Dr. Tabacchi is a pioneer in spa education and mentor to many in the spa industry.

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

The recipient will receive $5,000 to offset their education expenses; 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.
