Les Roches has joined forces with The Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association Education Foundation (CHTAEF) to provide educational scholarship opportunities to Caribbean hospitality industry professionals.

This initiative aims to support the recovery of the region’s tourism industry through knowledge development and upskilling. As such, we are offering selective, merit-based scholarship grants for our Executive Professional Postgraduate Diploma (PGD)/Professional Development Diploma (PDD) in International Hotel Management.

Our 6-month Executive PGD/PDD is fully remote and flexible, designed to be studied alongside your current job commitments so you can accelerate your career without interrupting it.

The Executive PGD/PDD program costs USD $17,200
Successful applicants will be offered scholarships ranging from USD $10,600 to $12,600 (note these are approximate figures and will vary according to prevailing exchange rates).

The scholarship covers between 60% and 75% of the program cost for accepted Caribbean nationals. Candidates – or their supporting employer – must commit to funding the remaining USD $4,600 to $6,600 cost of the program.

Candidates with strong academic performance will have the opportunity to progress to the Executive Master’s in International Hotel Management, with additional scholarship from Les Roches.
