2023 Vito J. Pitta Scholarships

Eligibility Information Form

Applications are now available for the 2023 Vito J. Pitta Scholarship Awards Competition. The competition is open to registered dependent children of eligible hotel and club employees who are members of the Hotel and Gaming Trades Council and/or Local 6. Applicants must be graduating high school seniors who are planning to attend an accredited four-year college in the fall.

To find out if your child is eligible to compete for this award, please complete the following Eligibility Information Form and submit it to the Scholarship Program office as soon as possible. You can download a PDF of the form here and mail it to the address on the form, or you may contact the Scholarship Fund by visiting https://www.hotelfunds.org and clicking on the Scholarship Program on the menu at the top of the page.

(NOTE: Most non-Division A hotels participate in this program. A list of clubs that participate appears below. Children of HTC members employed in Division A hotels have a separate scholarship program and are not eligible for the Vito J. Pitta Scholarship program.

Please remember this Eligibility Information Form is not a competition application. As soon as the Scholarship Office receives your information form, your eligibility will be reviewed and you will be advised immediately. If your child is eligible, you can pick up a 2023 Scholarship Competition Application packet at the Scholarship Fund Office or one will be mailed, or e-mailed, to you if you so request.

If a competition application is issued to your child, please note that the completed application must be received by the Scholarship Program Office no later than Monday, April 3, 2023. To avoid delays with postal mail, it is highly recommended that you return it in person. Applications that are emailed or faxed cannot be accepted, as original signatures are required on the form.
