Francis Kobty Hospitality Scholarship

Donation protected
Thank you everyone for making last year’s success

This scholarship was established by the Kobty family in partnership with the Travel & Sports Legacy Foundation in memory of Francis "The Prince" Kobty, founder of the Prince Lebanese Grill. Francis lived his life with a strong sense of family, community, and hospitality. The restaurant dream became a reality in 1989, beginning with the conversion of a former Sonic Restaurant. From there, this labor of love became an iconic thread in the fabric of Arlington. Prince Lebanese was not just a restaurant, it was the culmination of The American Dream. Thousands of loyal customers became family and everyone who worked there became his own children. ​ The Kobty family wishes to honor "The Prince's" legacy by offering a Culinary Arts Scholarship to homegrown talent from Arlington Independent School District (A.I.S.D. and Mansfield Independent School District (M.I.S.D.) reach their goals at Tarrant County College.
