In conjunction with AHA NSW, the Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School (BMIHMS) is offering two lucky students from regional NSW the opportunity of a lifetime.
Applications are now open for the 2015 Hospitality Scholarship, which will grant two prospective students — one male and one female — a $20,000 scholarship grant from the AHA NSW Foundation.
The lucky recipients will undertake a 2.5 year Bachelor of Business Degree (International Hotel and Resort Management) at BMIHMS; one of the School’s most highly sought after degrees.
BMIHMS General Manager, Jerome Casteigt, said the organisation was thrilled to be partnering with AHA NSW for the sixth year running to offer two students such an exciting opportunity.
“At BMIHMS, we are strongly focused on investing in potential and rewarding talent.”
“We are always looking for students who are passionate about the industry, but we are also conscious that not all students have the same access to the high quality education we provide.”
“This scholarship opportunity is designed to provide encouragement and support for hardworking regional students who are interested in a career in hospitality management. We’re excited to be working with AHA NSW to help these students achieve their career goals,” he said.
The scholarship grants will go towards assisting with the cost of accommodation associated with the degree. All entries will be judged by a panel of hotel industry leaders.
Applications are open to any male or female living in regional NSW. Applicants are eligible to be under the age of 18 when applying, however must be over the age of 18 when the degree commences within 12 months of receiving the scholarship.
Members of the general public are also invited nominate worthy recipients who demonstrate the qualities of regional NSW — hardworking with a strong desire to succeed in the hospitality industry.
Applications close on Friday 25 September 2015. Successful applicants will be personally contacted with further details closer to the time.
