FEDHASA CAPE celebrates and recognises the efforts of young South Africans, and is proud to announce that for the 4th year running, applications for the FEDHASA Cape Youth Bursary is now open.

As the official voice and representative of the hospitality industry, FEDHASA Cape understands the sector’s role as a key driver of economic and employment growth. However the success of the industry is reliant on professional standards, which need to be developed and ingrained at the learning and training level of future industry members.

As such, FEDHASA Cape has invested in education through the FEDHASA Cape Youth Bursary initiative aimed at offering financial assistance to the future leaders of the hospitality industry.

FEDHASA Cape is calling on students and trainees currently in the employ or studying at FEDHASA Cape member institutions and establishments to apply for the FEDHASA Cape Youth Bursary by noon, on the 31 August 2016. Entrants, who are currently in their 2nd year of studies or going into their final year in 2017, can apply for this bursary.  Successful candidates stand the chance of being the recipient of a bursary to the value of R50 000.
