CHTAEF was established in 1986 as a stand-alone 501 (c) 3 nonprofit, tax-exempt organization. Its mandate is to improve and elevate the quality and professionalism of the hotel and tourism industry in the Caribbean through education and training. Today, it is one of the largest charitable programs in the Caribbean hospitality industry, having raised and awarded more than $2 million in scholarships and grants to applicants who demonstrate a strong commitment to the hotel and tourism industry in the region.

Scholarships are awarded to applicants attending accredited tourism and hospitality institutions around the world, and in partnership with academic institutions like Johnson & Wales University, Monroe College and Florida International University which provide additional scholarship support to eligible CHTAEF scholarship students.

CHTAEF also funds certifications and accreditation programs for established regional industry professionals. In conjunction with the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association, certification programs are now being refined, redeveloped and funded to support the foundation’s primary objective of continually elevating the industry’s professionalism. These shorter courses provide immediate, tangible results for the industry due to the nature of their tailored and specific coursework.  More information about these credentialing programs will be ongoing.
