Establishment

Crystalbrook Kingsley would like to support students who will contribute to improving environmental sustainability in the hospitality industry. The Crystalbrook Kingsley Environmental Scholarship will support a student with a strong passion for environmental change and practical solutions for environmental sustainability, while providing a foundation for a collaborative and long-standing relationship between Crystalbrook Collection, students and the University for the benefit of our shared sustainability goals and communities. Crystalbrook Kingsley invites the chosen applicant to meet with the hotel to discuss their ideas on environmental change and how these could enhance, but not compromise the guest experience.
