“UNLV continues to provide an exceptional education in the hospitality industry, as well as unparalleled local resources for students,” said BACK BAR founder and UNLV alumnus, Tim Haughinberry. “These students are the future business leaders in Las Vegas, and BACK BAR is proud to support their education.”
BACK BAR USA first established a scholarship program with UNLV in 2016. The 2017/2018 BACK BAR USA scholarships will continue to be awarded to students in UNLV’s Hospitality Management program with requirements that include full-time enrollment in the Honors College, current residency in Nevada, completion of at least 60 credits and a minimum grade point average of 3.40.
When BACK BAR USA scholarship candidates are selected, students will meet with Haughinberry, and chief executive officer, Flor Bernal (pictured), also a UNLV alumna.
