A new scholarship for students studying towards a career in hotel management has been launched at the 2019 New Zealand Hotel Industry Conference today.
Four New Zealand Hotel Industry Scholarships worth $3000 each will be awarded for study in 2020. Applicants will need to be entering their final year of study, on a hotel management or business degree with a major in hotels/hospitality.

Horwath HTL Director Stephen Hamilton says the growth in tourism means hotels can offer more opportunities than ever to young people, in every part of the country.
