HIT Scotland Scholarships
HIT Scotland empowers development through its scholarship programme which is open to anyone working in or studying towards a career in the Scottish hospitality industry.
A HIT Scotland scholarship is a learning experience, designed to give you new skills or knowledge, to experience best practice, or refresh your way of thinking. The content of each scholarship varies depending on your personal development objectives, and the scholarship you have applied for.
We will also ask you in return for the scholarship, to show support back to the industry. Scholars opt to do this in a variety of ways, from speaking at an event, working or cooking at an event, mentoring a potential scholar, or providing prizes for auctions and raffles. The choice is yours!
Our scholarships are split into three different categories - Business empowerment, Operational empowerment and Inspirational empowerment.
