Silent Auction at New York Times Travel Show, January 18-20, 2013
THANK YOU! to all the great folks of the tri-state area who braved very cold weather to come out and support the CHTA Education Foundation (CHTAEF) silent Caribbean Auction at the New York Times Travel Show in January. Great Caribbean Vacations were snapped up at incredible prices thanks to the generosity of our resort, hotel and attraction partners, so ensuring we have a healthy pot of scholarship monies to award our 2013 intelligent and aspiring Caribbean hospitality professionals.
Would you appreciate mentoring by a peer? Look no further than our Programs tab and contact one of our past scholars for advice and guidance.
Thanks for visiting our website and we hope you return again soon as we update monthly.

Who We Are
The Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association Education Foundation (CHTAEF) was established in 1987 as an independent non-profit organization offering tax-exempt status for donations. The charity offers scholarships and special assistance for the education of Caribbean tourism industry personnel and students pursuing tourism & hospitality careers. As part of its mission, the Education Foundation provides people throughout the Caribbean region with an awareness of the varied career opportunities in the industry, as well as technical and professional development.
Today, the CHTA Education Foundation volunteer trustees administer one of the largest scholarship programs available in the Caribbean Hospitality & Tourism Industry. Funds for these scholarships and grants are generated from corporate sponsorships, benefit auctions & special events. We also encourage the co-sponsorship of scholarships through businesses that do business with the Caribbean, National Hotel Associations and individual Resort sponsorship.
