If you’re looking for 2020 career clarity, then look no further. This cake could be yours. The first Travel Industry Mentor Experience (TIME) scholarship opportunity for 2020 has been announced.

The scholarship includes a significant contribution to the renowned mentoring program’s fees funded by the ‘Doing Time for TIME’ efforts of high-profile industry figures and TIME Board members Fiona Dalton and Trish Shepherd.

“We’re really blessed and blown away by the support of some incredibly generous people like Trish and Fiona. Their fundraising efforts were outstanding.”

Penny Spencer, TIME Founder

“Whilst not a full scholarship, the financial contribution from Fiona and Trish covers 60 percent of the program’s participation fee,” she added.

“That makes this a fabulous opportunity for a travel-tourism-hospitality professional to either self-fund their participation, or pitch an affordable professional development option to their employer.”

Fiona and Trish’s generous efforts follow hot on the heels of those of prominent travel industry figures, Martin Cowley and Steve Mackenzie of The Lido Group, now HRS. Martin and Steve presented their funds to TIME in February 2019.

The 2020 scholarship applies to TIME intake no. 37 commencing on 19 February 2020, and applications are now open.

Steve and Martin present their scholarship funds earlier in 2019.

Applications close on Friday 10 January 2020.

Each TIME mentoring program runs for six months. Participants in intake no. 37 will graduate on 26 August 2020.

This is a nationwide opportunity as the successful applicant may be from any state or territory.

Travel-tourism-hospitality professionals are encouraged to follow the program on Facebook and LinkedIn to keep up to date with what’s going on inside the industry’s premier career accelerator.
