The Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association (CHTA) Education Foundation annual application period for scholarships is now open. The deadline for submissions will be 15-April and this year, they are using a new online application process which they expect to expand the number of applications.
The CHTA Education Foundation was formed in 1986 with an express mandate to fund training and education for Caribbean Nationals in the hospitality industry. Today, they are the largest education foundation in the Caribbean for the Caribbean expressly focused on the hospitality sector, having granted scholarships to over 80 individuals in the last 5-years alone.
These scholarships would be valuable for children of hotel employees who may be interested in following in their parent’s footsteps and entering the hospitality industry. It would also be a wonderful opportunity for employees themselves interested in taking short courses, like Les Roches or Cornell University’s Professional Development programs or online courses, but the opportunity is for all.
The scholarship application criteria can be access from the Foundation page here and the online application form is also accessible from this page.
