Bridging the Gap Announces Indigenous Scholarships Winners

Bridging the Gap Foundation in partnership with International College of Hotel Management (ICHM) and Accor had the pleasure of announcing that Ghinna Ambrum and Maddison Ingram are the recipients of the second round of Indigenous Hospitality Scholarships.

This is the second year that the scholarships have been awarded by Bridging the Gap Foundation and partners, providing the opportunity for Indigenous students to study a three-year Bachelor of Business (Hospitality Management) Course at ICHM. Last year's recipient was Kenneth Abrook, Kaurna man who is continuing his second year of studies at ICHM.

The Foundation will fund the accommodation of two Indigenous students from 2020 onwards, with ICHM funding the student’s tuition and Accor contributing through the provision of books and uniforms. An Indigenous mentor and support from Accor’s Indigenous Programs team will be provided to the students while they study and work to enable their success.

The scholarships were officially awarded to Ghinna and Maddison on Friday 28 February at IBIS Adelaide by The Hon. David Pisoni, Minister for Skills and Innovation.
