May 2018: Applications to enlist in FEDHASA Cape’s 2018 Youth Bursary programme are open and students studying towards a hospitality qualification are invited to apply.
Jeff Rosenberg, chairperson of FEDHASA Cape says the annual scholarship, awarded to deserving hospitality students will give them the opportunity to secure their third and final year of studies and also provides that stepping stone students need in order to develop into up and coming hospitality industry leaders.
“This bursary is FEDHASA Cape’s way of paying it forward and we urge eligible students who meet the necessary requirements to enlist,” Rosenberg says.
The bursary covers the course’s tuition fees using proceeds raised at the annual FEDHASA Cape Golf Day last month. In-line with the stringent application requirements, Rosenberg says training institutions are also requested to provide FEDHASA Cape with selected student’s academic progress at least twice a year. Furthermore, if the candidate fails to complete his/her studies, FEDHASA Cape is well within its right to request that he/she repays the bursary in full, and another recipient will be selected from the association’s shortlist.
Tick box requirements:
- Hospitality students from FEDHASA Cape member establishments in second year
- Full academic record
- A letter of recommendation from a lecturer
- Motivation highlighting financial obstacles that could hinder study payments
“With this bursary, candidates from less fortunate social circumstances will have the opportunity to complete their studies without the burden of worrying where the funds will come from. There are many such candidates out there and this scholarship will make things a whole lot easier by allowing students to focus solely on their studies,” Rosenberg says.
