Organised by Hospitality Industry Trust (HIT) Scotland, the scholarships have previously been with Michelin-starred chefs and leading sommeliers, at the Disney Institute in Florida, and a six-star resort in Dubai.

 

The £100k Emerging Talents program has so far awarded 800 scholarships over eight years, returning an estimated £5m to the Scottish economy through improved skills, best practice, staff retention and professional development.

 

Beverly Payne, head of HIT Scotland’s scholarship committee, said: “The scholarships are seen as high value opportunities and it is vital that we keep providing great experiences so people can learn from the best and bring back ideas and innovations to help move Scottish hospitality forward.”

 

Applications are welcomed by any Scottish hospitality employee of any age until 30 November. Visit www.hitscotland to apply.
