Two students heading towards their final year of tertiary study have been selected as recipients for the 2022 Tourism Industry New Zealand Trust (TINZT) Tourism Academic Scholarship.
Second-year tourism students Megan Clarke (Victoria University) and Rosie Marchant (Lincoln University) will each receive a $2500 payment towards their final year of study, and will also join a range of industry leaders at a Development Day hosted by TIA in early February 2022 in Wellington.
“Both Clarke and Marchant are strong, deserving candidates,” said TINZT and Tourism Industry Aotearoa Board Chair, Gráinne Troute.
“Despite this ongoing period of uncertainty, it gives me confidence that students of this calibre intend to continue their journeys into the tourism industry.”
In its seventh year, the TINZT Tourism Academic Scholarship programme supports students heading into their final year of tertiary study in tourism-related courses while connecting them with opportunities to kick-start their careers.
The recipients are selected by a judging panel that includes a TINZT trustee, a senior TIA manager and an industry representative.
“TINZT is proud to continue its part in supporting talented young people to enter our industry,” said Troute.
“I am pleased to see these two ambitious young people take promising first steps in their careers.”
