2015 Scholarships now open!!Posted on 12/06/2014 by itcnz
The International Travel College of New Zealand’s (ITC) 2015 scholarship applications are now open to those who want to study for the airport, airline, travel or tourism industries.
This is the third year that ITC has run the application process by asking students to create a video or a blog to be posted online. The entry needs to show the student’s passion and enthusiasm for the travel and tourism industries and commitment to learning.
“The technology and social media element of the scholarship makes it particularly relevant to this generation of students and to the changing way that travel and tourism operates,” says ITC’s Account Manager Ceri Jenkins.
Applications are open earlier this year to give students more time to plan and create their online masterpieces, and the voting element has been removed.
“We initially thought that would be a fun element to the scholarship applications, but we have discovered that it put some people off. We want this to appeal to as many potential students as possible; and although it is a fun exercise, it is an important and serious decision we have to make regarding who receives the scholarships,” says Ceri..
A group of ITC’s tutors and management team will select the recipients, and they will be looking for that special something that makes ITC’s graduates so successful.
“There are a number of qualities that people need to really contribute to the travel and tourism industry and to have a career that they love,” says Ceri..
“All of our tutors have worked in these industries and the college has strong connections with organisations and employers in airline, travel and tourism, so we know what they are looking for.”
“We are all excited about seeing what this year’s applicants can show us!”
