Entries are now being invited for this year's Master Innholder Scholarships from managers in the hospitality industry.
Successful candidates will be given the opportunity to study on a two-week management development course at Cranfield University in Bedfordshire, Cornell University in the USA or École Hôtelière de Lausanne in Switzerland.
The entire cost of tuition, board and lodging is included as well as a contribution towards travel to Cornell and Lausanne.
Established in 1997 with support from the Worshipful Company of Innholders, the Savoy Educational Trust and the Lord Forte Foundation, the scholarship programme has an impressive alumni, known as the St Julian Scholars.
They include David Morgan-Hewitt, managing director, Goring hotel, David Taylor, general manager, London Edition hotel; Rebecca Gunn, general manager, Kensington hotel, London, and Claire Randall, managing director, Luckham Park, near Bath.
Applications are welcome from managers who have normally had at least four years of experience in a hotel management role. They are likely to hold a degree or diploma in hotel management.
There are now more than 200 St Julian Scholars, all who have benefitted from the £1m which has been invested in the scheme.
