CHSA Bursary offers financial support for students

The Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA) has launched its 2024 search for the successful applicants of its undergraduate bursary. Four talented young people will each receive £6,000 during their university career.

Since it was first awarded in 2016 in its current form, 21 young people have benefited from the financial support offered by the bursary. It has made it possible for them to engage fully in their university careers, paying for books and study materials, field trips and club memberships. It has also provided the freedom to enjoy the full range of social opportunities.

David Garcia, Vice President of the CHSA and the driving force behind the bursary explained: “The bursary can make a huge difference to students’ experiences of university. Their resources are often limited, and we are proud to be able to help, giving them the additional money they need to make the very most of the wonderful opportunities offered by university.

“I am very much looking forward to meeting the 2024 cohort of talented applicants but not the difficult process of selecting the final four.”

The £6,000 bursary is paid in three installments, £2,000 paid at the start of each academic year or for the first three years if the degree is four years or longer.

The CHSA undergraduate bursary is open only to the children of employees of CHSA members. Applicants must be 18 years or over on 1 September 2024 and commencing their higher education studies this autumn.  They will be assessed according to need, worthiness, endeavour and overall performance. Each successful applicant will also bring something unique, their ‘x-factor’.

Applying is simple.  Eligible young people need to visit the CHSA website and click on the link on the bursary page.  The form includes a 400-word statement. It is advisable to draft the statement prior to accessing the form.

The closing date for applications is Friday 28 June 2024. Shortlisted applicants need to be available to meet the judging panel, to be led by CHSA Vice President David Garcia, in July 2024. The successful applicants will be notified by the end of August 2024.
