Gold Service Scholarship 2019 semi-finalists revealed

The semi-finalists of the Gold Service Scholarship 2019 have been revealed.

The 42 candidates shortlisted will undertake a series of tests, challenges and interviews at the semi-final, to be held at the Rosewood hotel, London, on Monday 26 November.

Chairman of the judges Edward Griffiths said: “It has been such an impressive group of young professionals making it through to the semi-finals this year – in fact, it was a very tough task to whittle the original 100 applicants down to the semi-final stage, so much so that we increased the numbers from the normal 32 to 42. It was impossible to eliminate more at this juncture. The next stage of the competition is going to be very exciting!”
