The Gap Year Escape Scholarship Programme is designed to recognise the skills that are fundamental to successfully operating in the online business space. A scholarship of £500 will be provided to assist one promising student interested in pursuing a career in business and marketing related fields.
Since its launch in 2009, Gap Year Escape has played a pivotal role in providing advice, guidance and inspiration to thousands of travellers whether they are on gap years, career breaks or short backpacking trips. The growth of the website has been driven by utilising innovative marketing techniques and an entrepreneurial motivation.
Amar Hussain, Gap Year Escape Founder: “Gap Year Escape became an outlet for my entrepreneurial drive and an arena where I could utilise the skills I had acquired from employment and university. What’s more, the business was started with an initial investment of £70! Seven years later the business has grown into a key figure in the Gap Year space. The Gap Year Escape scholarship will assist and encourage a Business or Marketing student to pursue a similar path of entrepreneurship”.
Application Deadline: December 31st, 2016
