Sjoerd Dijkstra Foundation

For students with a passion for hospitality

When he retired as an active hotelier in 2007, Sjoerd Dijkstra felt the need to set up a foundation to offer young people in the "magnificent trade" of hotelier, as he likes to call it, a great start towards a successful career in this profession. With the founding of the Sjoerd Dijkstra Foundation on the occasion of this farewell as hotelier and at the occasion of its 50th anniversary in the hospitality business, a start was made on fulfilling his dream to support the future of talented students.
