Past Recipients of the ALP Fund Grants and Scholarships are Living Their Dream!

"As a recipient of the ALP Fund Scholarship Grant in the first few months of my innkeeping experience, I can truly say it made a huge difference in how I do things. I was able to get so much knowledge, make great contacts, and take away things that have made our business very successful. I also learned the importance of getting involved in the industry and taking part in the state, regional, and national conferences."

Leslie Drake, Innkeeper for Fleur-De-Lys Mansion, St Louis MO

“Attending the 2022 ALP Conference was really beneficial for us.  We were able to learn about upcoming technologies and meet lots of vendors. We especially loved meeting other Innkeepers and making those connections. We're very grateful that we received the Scott Bushnell Grant, which helped make our attendance possible!”

Brenda and Peter Beznoska, Innkeepers for Andon-Reid Inn Bed and Breakfast, Waynesville, NC

"The ALP Fund Mary White Scholarship has meant so much more than a membership to an organization. It has meant being a part of a community where I have been taught, mentored, made lifelong connections and been given the opportunity to grow within a supportive environment. Especially as a newcomer to the hospitality field, the availability of these countless resources has been invaluable to my education and I am so grateful for the legacy that has lived on with Mary White."

Heather Houston, Aspiring Innkeeper, The Silverbow Inn, Juneau, Alaska
