Applications for ITC 2016 scholarships are now open

Applications for ITC 2016 scholarships are now open

The International Travel College of New Zealand (ITC) is now accepting applications for its 2016 scholarships. Open to people of all ages (17 and over) and backgrounds, these scholarships are an excellent opportunity to demonstrate your passion for a career in travel and tourism.

This year's scholarship theme is 'Tell Us Your Story'. ITC is inviting applicants to submit a piece of creative work which showcases their enthusiasm for working in the airline, travel or tourism industries. This passion could be demonstrated with video footage, blog posts, a comic strip, an illustration or anything else the applicant feels is appropriate.

"Our advice is to be creative in how you present your story," says ITC Marketing Director Claire Huxley.

"We are giving applicants total creative freedom to produce something that they believe best demonstrates their passion, motivation and individuality."

Previous winners filmed imaginary tours of their local communities, pretended to be air hostesses or even rapped their story. Others have written creative blog posts, describing their travel experiences and career dreams.

According to ITC Account Manager Ceri Jenkins, one of the scholarship judges, entering this award is a great opportunity to reflect on why you want to study at ITC and how you are going to make your dreams become a reality.

"Applying for an ITC scholarship encourages people to think about their future. It enables applicants to really understand why they want to work in the dynamic travel and tourism industry," says Ceri.

Ceri hopes many people will take the time to submit an application, as you never know what doors it could open.

"A few hours of hard work now could really change your life. One of last year's scholarship winners has just been accepted to work at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. If you work hard, and show passion and enthusiasm, many opportunities will arise," he says.

"It's like the lottery – if you don't enter you're not going to win. For a few hours of your time, you could earn yourself $5000 towards your course fees," Ceri added.

Prospective students are invited to apply for this exciting opportunity via the ITC website: Terms and conditions apply.
