Johnson explained that there currently exist a special scholarship program at Johnson & Wales University where students—who have Dutch residency and who qualify for study financing with the Island Government of St. Maarten —could attend the University at a minimal cost after all year end expenses are added up.

Johnson & Wales is currently offering yearly tuition (including room and board) of $15,000. The study financing department, once qualified, will provide students with $15,000 of study financing—part of which is a loan, the other, a grant—thus essentially covering the total expenses for 4 years of a college degree.

Commissioner Marlin said that this offer of zero dollars is difficult to beat. "I encourage students to take advantage of this educational opportunity. For over 20 years, Johnson and Wales have had a relationship with St. Maarten. With this effort, we have reinvigorated the relationship. People who know or have heard about the program should tell their friends and family. Hopefully this program will stimulate enrollment and the mutual benefits could be realized," Marlin said.

"I want to thank you for coming to St. Maarten, and hope you have a pleasant stay, and that you will be back soon."

Johnson & Wales is an accredited university with 4 campuses on the Eastern part of North America. Students come from all parts of the United States and from 92 countries across the world.

Johnson said that students should visit and
