Something young people can rely on – the CHSA’s 2021 Undergraduate Bursary
Young people may not yet be certain of the detail of what’s replacing A’ Levels this summer but there is one thing they can rely on – the Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association’s (CHSA) Bursary.
2021 is the sixth year since the scheme was re-introduced the CHSA has awarded the Bursary to talented young people. Four young people have already completed their studies with the support of a CHSA Bursary. Seven are current recipients, two of whom graduate this summer. Together they will have received £49,500 from the CHSA by the end of their studies.
Every successful applicant is awarded a maximum of £4,500, receiving the Bursary in three instalments, £1,500 at the start of each academic year or for the first three academic years if the degree is longer.
Only ‘would be students’, who are the children of CHSA members’ employees, will be 18 years of over on 1 September 2021, and commencing their higher education studies this autumn are eligible to apply.
Applicants are assessed according to need, worthiness, endeavour, and overall performance. Each candidate also brings something unique, their ‘x-factor’.
The closing date for applications is 25 June 2021. Shortlisted applicants need to be available to meet the judging panel, to be led by CHSA Vice President David Garcia, on 21 July 2021.
