Charter Hall of Fame offers scholarship


The inaugural Charter Yachting Hall of Fame educational scholarship will be awarded to a student from Antigua & Barbuda in the culinary arts.

The Selwyn James Scholarship is sponsored by the Charter Yacht Brokers Association (CYBA) and is a two-year associate degree in Applied Science: Culinary Arts aimed to advance careers in the culinary arts sector of the yachting industry.

The scholarship will include tuition, education materials reimbursement and will involve various sectors of the yachting community outside of the classroom setting. CYBA Yachting Hall of Fame inductee and Antiguan, Selwyn James, will provide mentorship for the scholarship winner and the yachting industry will provide an internship for the scholarship recipient.

“The scholarship in the culinary arts not only celebrates the illustrious career of Selwyn James and his impact on the yachting community but ensures that our industry is cultivating similar culinary talents for the future,” CYBA President Trish Cronan said.

“The Charter Yacht industry benefits immensely from the Heffners’ generosity as this scholarship provides a continuum of talented charter chefs for the yachts we promote to our clients,” Cronan said of the yacht owners, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Heffner, III, who employed Selwyn James and provided the funding for the scholarship.
