Interval International Supports Scholarship Program

The Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association (CHTA) has presented Interval International and participating member resorts with an award recognizing their generous support of its scholarship program. Their contributions to the CHTA Education Foundation (CHTAEF) have steadily increased over the past few years, totaling $175,000.

Neil Kolton, Interval’s director of resort sales and service for the region, accepted the honor at the recent Caribbean Marketplace in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

“The support from Interval and its affiliated resorts has been instrumental in our ability to provide students and hospitality executives with the means to establish and further their careers,” noted Tom Pas, chairman of CHTAEF. “These ongoing contributions have made it possible for a significant number of Caribbean nationals to take advantage of educational opportunities that would not have otherwise been available to them. We owe Interval and its affiliates a debt of gratitude.”

“While this acknowledgment is greatly appreciated, the true reward is seeing scholarship recipients become successful professionals who in turn contribute to the tourism industry in the region,” said Kolton, who also credited the company’s member resorts for their generous support of CHTAEF.

The CHTAEF was established in 1987 as a non-profit organization to provide scholarships and special assistance to Caribbean hospitality industry personnel and students pursuing hospitality and tourism careers. The foundation has awarded more than US$1 million dollars in scholarships and grants

As a Strategic Partner of CHTA and a Board Member of the CHTA Education Foundation and the Caribbean Tourism Organization’s Scholarship Foundation, Interval has been a long time supporter of the tourism industry in the Caribbean. The company is committed to understanding the unique needs of the region and providing products and programs tailored to this market.
