BUILDING UP - Tourism Employer Investment Fund Scholarship Opportunity

The Tourism Industry Association of Nova Scotia (TIANS) and the Nova Scotia Tourism Human Resource Council (NSTHRC) are pleased to announce a new addition to their scholarship program, with the launch of the Tourism Employer Investment Fund.
This support fund will accept applications from a business owner or senior employee of the company, as they look to enhance their skills and knowledge through a wide variety of training and learning opportunities.
As we encourage employers to invest in their staff, it is equally important that we support employers themselves – to help build essential skills to operate in a dynamic and innovative global marketplace.
Whether a course, conference, accreditations - we want to support building the leadership of the Nova Scotia Tourism Industry. Funding support will be up to $2500 per applicant.
In order to be eligible for the Tourism Employer Investment Fund applicants must be:
- Pursuing a professional development opportunity to enhance their skills or career path within the tourism industry
- Employed in a Senior Position or an Owner in the Nova Scotia Tourism Industry

Apply Online - a member of TIANS/NSTHRC will be in touch following Application Review.
