In its seventh year, the TINZT Tourism Academic Scholarship programme supports students heading into their final year of tertiary study in tourism-related courses while connecting them with opportunities to kick-start their careers.
The recipients are selected by a judging panel that includes a TINZT Trustee, a senior TIA manager and an industry representative.

Entering an industry confronting a post-COVID world, Rosie is keenly aware of trends that will shape the future of tourism. Studying at Lincoln University, Rosie is ready to contribute to the growth of domestic tourism in New Zealand, recognising that travellers want to experience more of New Zealand before heading overseas.
A keen traveller herself, Rosie displays a passion for ensuring visitors from near and far have unforgettable experiences. She is looking forward to meeting with tourism leaders when border restrictions lift.
