Hospitality Scholarships


The Irish College Leuven offers up to thirty scholarships each year to students and young people interested in developing their hospitality career in an international setting.

Scholarships, to the value of €10,000 per annum, are offered for 6 month periods, twice a year. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to work in a unique setting supporting the work of clients at their conferences, meetings and events and delivering a quality hospitality experience for guests from all over the globe.

Those selected to take part in the programme will benefit from staying in an international hall of residence as part of the KU Leuven student community. Certain meals are provided when working and participants receive a weekly stipend of €125.00 paid into their home bank account. Additional support may be requested through the EU funding channels of Erasmus+ and EURES.

Coming to the Irish college has definitely been an unforgettable experience.

Due to how amazing the experience was, I’ve decided to stay on longer as I want to push myself to achieve more and continue to improve on my hospitality skills.”
