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.

The silent auction, is made possible by hotel donations from our members and corporate sponsors. For more info about our silent auction at the NY Times Travel show, click here.
