The Master Innholder Scholarships were established in 1997 as an initiative from the Worshipful Company of Innholders designed to provide additional professional development opportunities for middle managers in the hospitality industry. Since then, the scheme has grown considerably, with the Worshipful Company of Innholders now joined by the Savoy Educational Trust and the Lord Forte
Foundation as its key supporters. Together with the Master Innholders Charitable Trust, they provide considerable funds to maintain the programme on an annual basis. In this context, over £2 million has been contributed to the programme since its inception, with more than 240 managers benefitting from a scholarship.
The entire cost of tuition, board and lodging is included as well as a contribution towards travel for the overseas programmes.
