Remembering Our Colleague

The David Iselin Scholarship for Community Service

The David Iselin Scholarship for Community Service is dedicated to the memory of our late Destination DC colleague. In addition to being a very talented young hospitality sales professional, David was a stalwart supporter of the American Experience Foundation and his synagogue here in Washington, DC. His scholarship is awarded annually to an Academy student or alumni who represents David’s commitment in using his talents to make his community a better place.


The scholarship is made possible by a generous gift from David’s parents, Harold and Lauren Iselin.

How to Apply

AEF Scholarships are only open to individuals who have attended one of Washington, DC's six Academies of Hospitality and Tourism or Academies of Culinary Arts or Hospitality High School [now closed]. Scholarships can be used at any higher education institution, including certificate programs, 2- and 4- year undergraduate programs, and graduate programs. Applications open in March and close in early May.


For more information, please contact a staff member at your Academy or Lisa Waldschmitt.
