The objective of this paper is to examine and compare the extent of support given by philanthropic agencies in the United States to college programs offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in Hotel, Food, and Travel Management. A focused sample was asked about certain characteristics surrounding their giving patterns to determine if there was an even distribution of financial support. The findings show that there is a high correlation of support directed to four year B.S. programs in public and private colleges.
