Applications for 2021 have now closed.

The Tourism Industry New Zealand Trust (TINZT) Scholarship is available to help young New Zealanders complete their final year of tourism-related tertiary study and prepare them for a fantastic career in tourism. 

The scholarships are for New Zealand citizens and permanent residents who have successfully commenced their study in a tourism-related course of study at an NZQA accredited tertiary institution in New Zealand, and who are about to commence on their final year of study in 2021. Up to two scholarships, valued at $4500 (including a $2500 contribution to academic fees and industry introduction package valued at $2000), will be awarded – one to an applicant completing level 4-6 qualifications, and one to an applicant completing level 7 and above.   

The aim of the two scholarships is to have the recipients employed in roles within the tourism workforce on completion of study. An indication of your intention to enter the New Zealand tourism workforce on completion of your study is an important factor in the selection criteria.
