Carole Moody Scholarship

The Saint Louis Attractions Association has been awarding scholarships to qualified students interested in pursuing careers in the tourism and hospitality industry since 1991. The Carole Moody Scholarship is named for founding Attractions Association member Carole Moody, in recognition of her nearly 30 years of contributions to the tourism and hospitality industry. We are honored to carry on Carole’s memory and spirit through this program.

This scholarship is open to any undergraduate college student or high school senior entering college majoring in a field that could contribute to the tourism/hospitality industry and maintaining a 3.0 or B grade point average. In addition, the student must have accomplished one of the following:

  1. Work in the industry for a SLAA member
  2. Completed an internship with a SLAA member
  3. Be a current member of SLAA (student memberships are available)
  4. Be a family member of a SLAA member
  5. Belong to a hospitality organization

Each July at the SLAA luncheon meeting, one or more students are awarded a scholarship in the amount of at least $1,000. One or more students may be awarded an Honorable Mention Award in the amount of $500.

Apply online or download an application.

Internship Opportunities

Internship opportunities from SLAA members are organized into a digital booklet that is made available to high schools and colleges in the metropolitan St. Louis area. This is a wonderful opportunity to give a student an amazing experience in the St. Louis tourism industry.
