Skål Hobart & TICT Emerging Leaders Scholarship Program

The career opportunity of a lifetime!

Skal International Club of Hobart and Tourism Industry Council Tasmania  invite young Tasmanian tourism professionals aged under 35 – along with those who service and work with our industry – to apply for the Tasmanian Tourism Emerging Leaders’ Scholarship. This is the second year of this exciting new scholarship program.

The Emerging Leaders Scholarship is designed to encourage and foster innovation, leadership and professional development within the Tasmanian tourism industry.

The Scholarship will provide financial assistance to the value of $10,000 for a young professional currently employed within the Tasmanian tourism industry or a related industry to undertake an interstate or international study tour for up-to four weeks to build their knowledge and experience of the operation of the industry from a comparable destination, and to then share this knowledge with their local industry colleagues.

Modelled on the ‘Winston Churchill Scholarships’, this once in a lifetime opportunity will provide the lucky recipient with the opportunity to travel to a destination anywhere in the world to experience and learn from an aspect of tourism they do really well, and to then bring this knowledge back to Tasmania.

It could be travelling to Alaska to study remote wilderness tourism, or New Zealand to study wine tourism, or Europe to study the youth market, Winter events in France, or destination marketing in a small South Pacific island – the ideas are truly limitless and we’re looking for innovative, well though out proposals, that demonstrate a clear reference point to our own industry, and we will achieve our T21 target of 1.5 million visitors by 2020.

The scholarship recipient will be required to undertake the travel component of their scholarship in the first half of 2018 and have the full support of their employer.

Applications for 2017 have closed, and the scholarship recipient will be announced at the Skal Hobart December Luncheon.
