The Lord Forte Scholarship Award

The Lord Forte Foundation Scholarship Award

The Lord Forte Foundation Scholarship Awards (LFFSA) was established within the Plymouth University Hotel School in 2015 to benefit students wishing to pursue a career in the hospitality industries.  

Why you should apply…

  • You can receive £2,500 in one academic year in addition to any other funding you also may have in place, which can be used to pay fees, living expenses or other costs that you have to meet 
  • The application process is simple and is worth completing to give you a chance at some very useful additional funding
  • Scholarship funding might give you the opportunity to work fewer part time hours and to therefore pursue a stronger degree outcome. This will be useful when you start looking for a job in hospitality!  
  • Along with the financial grant, Scholars also have the opportunity to gain work experience and enhance their CV working within the Hotel School academic team to promote our programmes to applicants at events throughout the year.
