Scholarships target hospitality workers

Some of the scholarships are open to those working in hospitality finance.

YOUNG hospitality workers have until tomorrow (November 1) to submit scholarship applications to HOSPA (Hospitality Professionals Association) for the educational organisation’s 2013 Scholarship Awards.

HOSPA scholarships are split into two categories: the Career Investment Development Scholarship for five “upcoming” young people aged 30 or under on November 1 working in hospitality finance, revenue management and IT; and the Future Career Investment Development Scholarship for five aspiring hospitality students who have “excelled” in their studies.
The 2013 HOSPA Scholarship Awards will also give the ten winners, which will be announced on November 8, the opportunity to attend HOSPA’s annual conference and exhibition, HOSPACE 2013, in London on November 21. Scholars will also attend the conference dinner, where their achievements will be recognised.
HOSPA said the importance of attracting young people into the industry and developing their skills “cannot be over-emphasised”.
