Tourism: not just hotel work

Tourism Councillor Joey Hew said out of the 200 scholarships given out to young Caymanians studying tourism, many of the contracts will permit study in other tourist-related fields outside of hospitality.

Mr. Hew said the scholarships given out will provide training in aviation and sciences critical for growth of the tourism sector.

“We have also awarded contracts for young Caymanians studying aviation, engineering, other tourism related fields not specifically hotel management or restaurant management or culinary art,” Mr. Hew said.

The Tourism Councillor said the partnership with the Ministry of Tourism and Johnson and Wales University will allow for more scholarships for Caymanians at a low discount.
