UNWTO and Sommet Education Offer 30 Scholarships through “Hospitality Challenge” to Hotel Professionals

The CHTA Education Foundation in partnership with Sommet Education schools Les Roches, Ecole Ducasse and Glion, presents an exciting new opportunity for Caribbean hotel professionals.

The World Tourism Organization and Sommet Education have partnered to present an innovative Hospitality Challenge which will grant 30 scholarships for world class education programs. The initiative has been developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has brought tourism to a standstill. Now, as the sector restarts, this competition is designed to identify ideas and individuals capable of accelerating recovery while promoting inclusiveness and sustainability in the sector to invent the hospitality of tomorrow.

The worldwide competition is open now until the end of August.

The Selection Committee, made up of an international network of investors, entrepreneurs and experts from UNWTO Member, Affiliate Members and strategic allies, as well as from representatives of Sommet Education, will then choose 30 finalists.

The 30 finalists will be eligible for full scholarships in 15 different Hospitality programs at the Bachelors, Masters and MBA levels, offered in the world-class academic institutions of Sommet Education: Glion Institute of Higher Education in Switzerland and London, Les Roches Crans-Montana in Switzerland, Les Roches Marbella in Spain and École Ducasse in France.

The CHTA Education Foundation and CHTA encourage all interested Caribbean professionals to review the competition information and to apply HERE.
