Skål Student Exchange Scholarship

Skål Hobart and Skål Copenhagen developed a twin relationship back in 2007 following the marriage of Princess Mary and Prince Frederick. In 2010 the two clubs decided to start a Skål Student exchange scholarship program for students studying tourism, hospitality or events student. The first student exchange began in 2011 with Tasmanian Bonnie Quarrier visiting Denmark and Eva Hamburger Neilson coming to Tasmania.

The chosen Tasmanian student is able to travel and study in Denmark over a period of three months with a focus on developing their tourism, hospitality or events experience. They are fully immersed into the Danish culture by staying with a Danish family selected by the Skål Club of Copenhagen.

The scholarship is specially tailored to the individual student’s preferences. They can choose a combination of study and work placement or purely work placement in their chosen field. All travel and living expenses are covered, the student only needs to pay for personal effects and spending money.

Students are welcome to organise pre and post scholarship travel under their own accord. The placement is generally September to November in the following year.

To apply for the 2015 Skål Scholarship you need to write an application addressing the criteria. For information on the process and the specific criteria questions please download the EXCHANGE STUDENT CRITERIA DOCUMENT.
