The Caribbean Tourism Organization’s (CTO) Scholarship Foundation is offering a number of scholarships to Caribbean nationals to advance their education by pursuing a bachelor’s degree programme in Hospitality Management or a Master’s degree programme in Tourism/Hospitality Management, full-time study, at Monroe College in New York, NY, U.S.A. (website address: http://www.Monroecollege.edu) or at its campus in Saint Lucia, West Indies. This very generous offer comes as a result of a signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between Monroe College and the Caribbean Tourism Organization in March 2012, which established a three year agreement for scholarships and study grants, to support students from the Caribbean to advance their tourism/hospitality education at Monroe College. Scholarship awards will range from US$4,500.00 to US$18,660.00 annually, equally distributed over three semesters. The funds will be used to offset student tuition expenses at Monroe College. All scholarship and grant candidates must be new toMonroe College.
Students interested in applying for these scholarships and study grant opportunities are asked to go to the Caribbean Tourism Organization’s website at http://www.onecaribbean.org to look at eligibility requirements and to access the application forms. The deadline for applications is August 3, 2012.
