Apart from a trophy and title, Maria Millar, Scottish School Cook of The Year, has also been awarded a HIT Scotland scholarship.
For the past three years HIT Scotland has offered a scholarship to the Scottish School Cook of The Year.
Since 1994, Hospitality Industry Trust (HIT) Scotland has endeavoured to identify and reward future leaders of the hospitality industry by providing invaluable scholarships to leverage their career.
By recognising the need to continually update skills within the industry, enhance personal development and bring fresh ideas back to Scottish businesses; HIT provides scholars with the opportunity to learn locally, nationally and internationally. The scholarships are awarded at the annual Emerging Talent Conference.
Scholarships are available to all aspiring individuals working within or studying towards a career in Scottish hospitality (in its broadest sense). As a scholar, they will spend time working in (either) varied operational areas or on structured programmes, allowing them to gain valuable knowledge, insight and confidence to get to the next level in their hospitality career.
