A record number of 15 scholarships will be available this year as HIT Scotland (Hospitality Industry Trust Scotland) is offering five of its own scholarships for the first time.
The winners will be recognised for their achievements in the workplace and classroom. Their prize will include a day at HOSPA's HOSPACE 2015 on 26 November and a place at the conference dinner.
HOSPA chief executive Carl Weldon (pictured) said: "We are delighted that HIT Scotland is offering five HOSPA Career Development Scholarships of its own to attend HOSPACE 2015. It is vitally important to attract talented young people from all corners of the UK."
He added: "HOSPACE 2015 is the largest and most prestigious annual gathering of like-minded hospitality practitioners in the UK - providing information, education and inspiration that will leave a lasting impression on the 15 lucky scholarship winners."
Candidates must be aged 30 or younger on 30 October 2015 - the closing date for nominations. All candidates will be notified before 13 November.
