What We're Working On
May 29 & 30, 2014
In 2014, Tourism Cares will leverage its strong legacy of community service to help Friends of Miami Marine Stadium restore Cuban-American Hilario Candela's Florida landmark and modern architectural masterpiece. Built in 1963 on Biscayne Bay, the 6,566 seat stadium, noted for its visually arresting cantilevered concrete roof, fell into disuse after Hurricane Andrew and had been slated for demolition. In 2012, the National Trust for Historic Preservation named the abandoned structure a National Treasure.
Tourism Cares awards up to 50 Academic Scholarships annually ranging from $1,000 from $4,000, for a total of up to $70,000 The Academic Scholarships benefit high school, undergraduate or graduate level students of travel, tourism or hospitality related programs of study at accredited schools within the United States and Canada.
