DEADLINE APPROACHING FOR THE CARIBBEAN HOTEL FOUNDATION
SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM - MARCH 31, 2003.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (March 3, 2003) -- The Caribbean Hotel Foundation has made a last call to Caribbean hospitality employees, professors, and students to apply for its 2003 Scholarship Program, provided to applicants who demonstrate a strong commitment to the hotel and tourism industry and the potential for future success. Application forms are available on the Caribbean Hotel Association website, at http://www.caribbeanhotels.org/cha/subsidiaries/foundation.htm. The application deadline is March 31, 2003.

The Foundation, one of the largest scholarship programs in the hospitality industry, has awarded more than US$.5 million dollars in scholarships and grants in the past five years alone. Scholarships are offered for full-and part-time students ranging from $1,000 to $5,000.

In addition to the academic scholarships, the Caribbean Hotel Foundation offers:

Scholarships to hotel employees for professional development;
Trainer Grants to individuals seeking the Certified Caribbean Hospitality Trainer (CCHT) designation;
Co-funded summer scholarships for Hospitality Management at L’Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne in Switzerland;
“Further Education” or “Industry Work Experience” Grants to hotel and tourism educators seeking to improve their academic qualifications or complement their classroom time with hands-on work experience.

Individuals can apply for one type of award per year. They must meet the criteria set forth by the Caribbean Hotel Foundation and be approved by their respective hotel associations.

Funds for these scholarships and grants are generated by the Caribbean Hotel Association (CHA) Golf Tournament, the Caribbean Culinary Federation Fundraising Dinners and the Auction held annually during the Caribbean Hotel Industry Conference (CHIC), and through the generous support of American Express and CHA hoteliers.
