The Oklahoma Hospitality Foundation is dedicated to the support and education of Oklahoma's hospitality students. Our Student Programs were formed to develop awareness of the careers available within the hospitality and tourism industry. The Hospitality and Tourism Management Program's (HTM) industry-driven curriculum is building the best and brightest talent, elevating the industry, and OHF scholarships put students on the path to achieve their dreams.
"The Oklahoma Hotel & Lodging Association works collectively with higher education, technology centers and high schools and keeps us connected to our future leaders through programs designed to help students at all levels to make an informed decision about their career choices."
