Tourism Industry Coincil Tasmania

Scholarships and Prizes

We offer two major scholarships annually. These scholarships give Tasmanian tourism professionals the opportunity to travel overseas, bringing back new knowledge and valuable experiences to use and to share with industry colleagues.  

TICT / Skal Club of Hobart Tasmanian Tourism Future Leader Scholarship

TICT / Skal Club of Hobart Tasmanian Tourism Future Leader Scholarship is awarded annually to a young and emerging Tasmanian tourism professional (aged under-35 years). Based on the Churchill Fellowship, our Future Leaders Scholarship enables the recipient to travel overseas and research a topic relevant to the Tasmanian tourism industry.

The 2016 scholarship was awarded to Hannah Martin, Communications Consultant at Federal Group. Hannah is travelling to New Zealand, Hong Kong and the UK in 2017 to study destinations successfully growing their market of Visiting Friends and Relatives of International Students.  

Tasmania – Fujian Tourism Exchange

Tasmania – Fujian Tourism Exchange was established in 2016 to foster closer engagement between the Tasmanian tourism industry and our colleagues in Tasmania’s long-time sister province, Fujian, China. The Exchange enables selected Tasmanian tourism industry representatives to tour Fujian, meet with local industry colleagues and develop a stronger understanding of tourism in China to bring back and share. Representatives of the Fujian tourism industry also visit Tasmania.

The Tasmanian representatives on the 2016 Exchange were Will Barbour from RACT Destinations and Rachel Power from Mt Field National Park’s Waterfalls Café.
