Applications open for new hotel scholarship


Applications are open for a new scholarship for students entering their final year of study towards a career in hotel management.

Up to four New Zealand Hotel Industry Scholarships worth $3000 each will be awarded for study in 2020. Applicants must be entering their final year of study, on a hotel management or business degree with a major in hotels/hospitality.

Applications are open until 19 September.

Tourism Industry Aotearoa Hotel Sector Manager Sally Attfield says the scholarships are a way to support individuals wanting to join the sector.

“Hotels offer fantastic career opportunities, from guest-facing roles to numerous behind the scenes positions that all contribute to running an accommodation property. We want to encourage young people to consider hotel careers,” she says.

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.

“Wherever your interests lie, you are sure to find a suitable role in our hotel sector,” he says.

TIA and Horwath HTL are co-hosts of the New Zealand Hotel Industry Conference.

In addition to up to $3000 towards their tuition fees, scholarship recipients will be offered the opportunity for industry experience and networking, and complimentary attendance at the 2020 New Zealand Hotel Industry Conference, 1-2 July 2020 and Hotel Industry Awards Gala Dinner, 2 July 2020 at Cordis, Auckland.
