In 2016, the HTM Society and Black Tie Dinner started a second endowment fund. The Keystone Grant endowment will be utilized for the upkeep and purchase of new equipment for foodservice labs in Marriott Hall to ensure that students are receiving the best educational experience with the newest technology. Another portion of this endowment will be used for all HTM undergraduates professional development. Students will have the opportunity to apply for funds in order to receive assistance for travel or admission into a conference to further their professional development. It can also be used for a certification or license that will help the student in their future and to further their goals. We are committed to growing this endowment in five years and ask for your assistance in order to continue the legacy of our esteemed program.
