Ministry of Tourism

Facilitating more Caymanian involvement in the tourism industry.

The Ministry of Tourism (MOT) organises and directs the activities for many departments all of which have similar goals; to protect the environment, support the economy, promote the islands as a premier destination for visitors and to support local businesses.

Scholarship Programme

The scholarship is designed for students who demonstrate a financial need and strong evidence of their desire and intent to pursue a Bachelors or Masters Degree in tourism or a tourism related discipline.

Scholarship details:
Since its inception in 1996, this annual scholarship has awarded over 150 students full or partial scholarships. Many of these students have gone on to work full time in the tourism industry, and now some hold senior positions at the Department of Tourism and other tourism establishments.

Historically MOT scholars have earned degrees in disciplines such as marketing, public relations and communications, tourism and environmental management, hotel management, travel tourism and hospitality and the visual arts at universities and colleges in the US, England and Canada.
