A number of Caribbean nationals are in a better position to pursue studies in tourism/hospitality, with the injection of more than US $65,000 in scholarships and grants from the Caribbean Tourism Organisation Scholarship Foundation in 2012.
The foundation has awarded scholarships to the tune of over US $35,000 to successful applicants from several countries who are pursuing post graduate studies at various educational institutions within and outside the Caribbean.
A total of $29,400 was plugged into grants and awarded to applicants from Antigua & Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago.
More than 190 Caribbean nationals have benefitted from the programme to the tune of over US$700,000 since the CTO Foundation was founded in 1997.
