Welcome to theSt Julian Scholars
The St Julian Scholars is the alumni of hotel professionals who have graduated from the Innholders Scholarships, a career-changing opportunity to attend management courses at world-renowned universities.
Designed to take professionals from managers to leaders, the scholarships provide invaluable training and development in managerial skills, industry best practice, market evolution and global future challenges.
Candidates attend one of two world-leading universities with the entire cost of tuition, board and lodging included.
Submissions for the scholarships are invited in the summer and a written application is initially required.
There are two courses available for award. You are given the opportunity to select your preferred course however this is not always guaranteed, and an alternative course may be offered.

To supply for the Innholders Scholarship, applicants must:
- Be currently employed in the UK hospitality industry working in a hotel or club.
- Discuss their intention to apply for a scholarship with their employer. The employer should endorse the submission and agree to the applicant be given time off to attend the relevant course if successful.
- Should not have any immediate plans to work outside the UK as this would result in the cancellation of a course
- Applications are welcome from previous delegates of the Master Innholders Aspiring Leaders Diploma four or more years after graduation.
Please note only one applicant per property will be accepted.
An assessment panel will review all submissions and draw up a shortlist of applicants who will be invited to attend an interview undertaken by a panel in the autumn in London.
The scholarships are awarded immediately following the interviews for courses being offered in the next year. Successful applicants are required to join the St Julian Scholars alumni following completion of their course.
Graduates of the Innholders Scholarship are invited to join the St Julian Scholars. Managed by an Executive Committee, the St Julian Scholars focuses on five key areas:
- Giving back
- Membership engagement
Each member of the St Julian Scholars Executive Committee sits on one of the above working groups and in addition, general alumni members are encouraged to take an active role in these groups.
