HIT Scotland Opens Scholarship Applications for 2018

11th of October, 2017 | Posted in Hotel News Email Article | Print Article

The Hospitality Industry Trust (HIT) Scotland has opened applications for its 2018 scholarship programme. Scholarships are available to all aspiring individuals working within or studying towards a career in Scottish hospitality. 

They offer the recipients once in a lifetime opportunities to improve their skills and progress within the industry, throughout their careers. Speaking about the 2018 HIT scholarship programme, Chief Executive, David Cochrane said, “I am hugely proud to be part of a sector that contributes so much to Scotland, and I know that the 2018 HIT scholarships will help to shape the future of the Scottish hospitality industry – especially during what will be the Year of Young People.

“HIT strives to make Scotland the best hospitality industry in the world and after 23 years we know this can be achieved through our once in a lifetime training opportunities and experiences that provide scholars with the opportunity to learn locally, nationally and internationally.”

This year HIT has once again partnered with Green Tourism, in its bid to improve sustainability 
within hospitality, to offer The Green Tourism Scholarship. This scholarship is aimed at hospitality professionals with a keen interest in business sustainability who plan to implement a sustainable strategy for their business.

Striving to keep the industry relevant, other HIT scholarship topics in 2018 include social media and innovation. The social media scholarship embraces the new technologies available to support business in reaching new markets and involves an interactive two-day workshop. While the innovation scholarship will give participants an insight into technology and future trends. Applications for the 2018 scholarship programme will close on Friday 24th November 2017.
