Hospitality Industry Trust (HIT) Scotland has announced three new categories in its 2016 scholarship programme.
The new categories will focus on customer service and include a customer services masterclass, capital gains scholarship and global scholarship. Scholarships are available for people working within or studying towards a career in Scottish hospitality.
David Cochrane, chief executive of HIT Scotland, said: "HIT strives to make Scotland the best hospitality industry in the world and we know this can be achieved through our once in a lifetime training opportunities and experiences that provide scholars with the opportunity to learn locally, nationally and internationally."
He added: "I am hugely proud to be part of a sector that contributes so much to Scotland, and I know these scholarships will help to shape the future of the Scottish hospitality industry."
Applications for the 2016 scholarship programme will be launched at the HIT Highland Dinner on 1 October and will close on 27 November 2015.
