The scholarships, with a total value of £60,000, are particularly tailored to support students who need financial assistance whilst rewarding those students who have achieved a high standard of academic performance.
The scholarships will also provide recipients with a career-path into the hospitality sector through the provision of paid placements with Compass Hospitality in the UK during their vacations and management training/career opportunities in the UK and abroad upon graduation.
“We are delighted to be offering these scholarships for students of the University of Hull,” mentioned Matthew Welbourn, Executive Vice President of Compass Hospitality UK. “We have a strong legacy of providing scholarships in Asia as we believe in the importance of education and welcome the opportunity to play a role in advancing the education and providing job opportunities to deserving students. We are also pleased that this effort will further enhance our already robust staff training and development programmes”
“The University of Hull is constantly exploring avenues for expanding the opportunities available to our students, and establishing ties with industry has always been an important part of this process. We therefore extend our gratitude and recognition to Compass Hospitality for its support of these students, and will look forward to entering into this fruitful and valuable relationship,” added Professor Susan Lea, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Hull.
The scholarships will be launched in January 2021.
