Invites for £10,000 Master Innholders' scholarship

Up to 20 scholarships, worth £10,000 each, are currently being offered to hotel managers keen to further their careers.

The Master Innholder (MI) Scholarship Programme aims to introduce middle managers to senior-general management techniques through short, intensive training courses.

David Taylor, general manager of London's Hoxton hotel and chairman of the St Julian's Scholars, the alumni association for graduates of the MI Scholarship Programme, said the majority of candidates will come from the independent sector, where the absence of formal training programmes and economic pressures on time make it difficult to receive conventional training.

"Candidates will be active middle managers in the hospitality industry and likely to be promoted to senior/general management positions within the next few years," he said. "Many will have had a formal education and hold a degree or diploma in hotel management. However, managers who have achieved their current positions through experience will also be encouraged to apply, so long as they can demonstrate an aptitude for learning and are seeking further promotion."

Funded annually by the Worshipful Company of Innholders, the Savoy Educational Trust, the Lord Forte Foundation, and the Master Innholders, the scholarships have been running since 1997 and have produced 170 scholars.

Details of how to apply for the scholarships can be found at The deadline for applications is 30 June.
