The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) is inviting applications for four scholarships to the Executive Development Institute for Tourism (EDIT) programme in Hawaii. Two PATA scholarships, one PATA Foundation scholarship and one Jerome A. Keller Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to promising young executives to help them get ahead in the travel and tourism industry.

EDIT, June 7-25, 2004 at the University of Hawaii's School of Travel Industry Management (TIM) is an intensive three-week executive tourism programme featuring lectures, class discussions, case studies, group presentations and field visits.

EDIT is open to 24 individuals with management responsibilities in travel and tourism-related organisations. Pre-requisites for enrolment are a college degree or equivalent work experience in the tourism industry, plus reasonable proficiency in the English language.
