Take a Tour in Italy This Summer! Scholarship Ap Due Now

Posted: Wednesday, January 23rd 2013 at 4:23 PM

There’s just over a week left for students to turn in applications to take a tour of the Costello Banfi wine estate in Italy.

Applications are due by 4 p.m. on Friday, February 1st to the front desk of the School of Hotel and Restaurant Management (HRM). Applications can be found outside of Professor Rande’s office, room 129. 

The trip is an all-expense-paid 8-day experience from June 1st to June 9th where students will get the chance to tour vineyards, wineries, balsamic vinegar factories, as well as take cooking classes.

In order to be considered for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, students must have a 3.0 GPA or above, have declared a major within HRM, and successfully passed HA 280 (Beverage Production and Service) and HA 499 (Wine Basics). 

NAU is so fortunate to be one of the schools invited by Banfi to attend this event.

“Out of 250 hotel schools in the country, we’re one of the 17 that is chosen to go on the trip,” Rande said. “I’ve actually done it three times… it’s pretty spectacular.”
