Applications for the Hostplus Hospitality Scholarship are now open for 2022.

Last awarded to Merivale‚Äôs Julie Davaine in 2019, the scholarship offers the next generation of Australian hospitality workers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fast-track their development in their profession.

A young front-of-house professional with Ms Davaine was awarded the scholarship for her vision to create a hospitality industry that is her more attractive to those with families.

The Scholarship prize is facilitated by Melbourne Food & Wine Festival through its hospitality networks, and the winner’s work experience will be tailored to their career interests – from the paddock to the kitchen, the cellar to the dining room and everywhere in between. Past finalists include not just chefs, waiters and managers but also young professionals from coffee, butchery, wine and other aspects of hospitality.

  • 1 x five-day work experience within Australia including up to $1,500 towards flights and up to $1,750 towards accommodation
  • $1,000 cash
  • Up to $5,000 to spend on professional development or training at an agreed and approved education provider, or on professional tools, kitchen equipment or similar assets to progress professional development
  • $500 worth of tickets to attend MFWF events in 2023
  • A year-long mentorship with a local industry leader to expand their industry experience and connections in their chosen field.

 To be considered for the scholarship, candidates must:

  • Demonstrate ambition and a drive to succeed in the hospitality industry;
  • Be highly skilled and knowledgeable in a specific discipline within the hospitality industry
  • Demonstrate leadership with the potential to shape the future of the hospitality industry
