With its mission to bring inclusion to the marginalised LGBTQIA+ communities, Keshav Suri, the executive director of The Lalit Suri Hospitality Group, launched fully paid scholarship for trans students at The Lalit Suri Hospitality School in 2019, under the aegis of The Keshav Suri Foundation. The Aditya Nanda Scholarship in Food Production and Bakery is awarded to deserving candidates after a screening process and will cover the entire tuition fees and campus boarding.
As the first batch three scholars complete the course, the foundation and hospitality group are proud of their journeys. Two of them are placed at The Lalit New Delhi – Transman in Bakery and one in F&B Services. Last Year due to the pandemic there were hardly any applications and only one scholar was selected. This year the scholarship wants to support more students for this scholarship. Applications are opened both offline and online. Any self-identified LGBTQ+ individual who had a minimum of a 12th class degree and is aged below 25 years could submit their candidature for the scholarship.
Aspirants should write to email@example.com. Shortlisted candidates will receive a call and post interviews, selections will be made.
