The Bali Hotels Association (BHA) is celebrating 10 years of helping tourism students in Bali achieve their academic goals. The BHA is this year providing 16 students from the Country’s largest tourism institute with scholarships.

The partnership between Bali Hotels Association (BHA) and the Inspirasia Foundation (formerly the Annika Linden Foundation) has seen 91 students to date, receiving full scholarships or partial scholarships.

“The hotels’ support comes in the form of candidate selection at the initial stage,” said Jean-Charles Le Coz, BHA chairman. “Thereafter, students that are eligible for full scholarship receives financial support provided by the Inspirasia Foundation while students that are eligible for partial scholarship receives funds from 28 BHA hotel members and/or other sources.”

Le Coz cited the example of I Gede Budiman, who was awarded a BHA scholarship in 2005–2006. With a hotel security guard father and a housewife mother, Budiman was invited by the Alila Manggis resort, where his father once worked, to join the program.

Budiman completed the hotel management program at Sekolah Tinggi Pariwisata Nusa Dua Bali in May 2009 and was hired by the Alila Manggis resort. In this way, hotels that sponsor scholarships directly benefit from the program. It was also a personal triumph for Budiman, to continue working where his father worked.

“BHA Scholarship Program has made my dream came true to be in the hospitality industry, and I am keen to support the continuity of the program by being an exemplar alumni. I want to be loyal, dedicated, and responsible to my family, the company and community in Bali.”

Le Coz went on to add that BHA is going to launch a book celebrating this one-decade of success. This book, which is expected to inspire similar sustainable program, will be printed and distributed to various government agencies.
