The hunt for CHSA’s 2018 undergraduate scholars begins

The Cleaning and Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA) has launched the search for its 2018 undergraduate scholars - at least two will be awarded this year. The CHSA has further committed to awarding at least two new bursaries every year for the next five years.

The sons and daughters of CHSA members who, on 1 September 2018 will be 18 years or over and commencing their higher education studies this year, are eligible to apply. The successful applicants will be awarded a maximum of £4500, receiving the bursary in three instalments - £1500 at the start of each academic year or for the first three academic years, even if the degree is four years or longer.

Applicants are assessed according to need, worthiness, endeavour, and overall performance. Each candidate brings something unique, so the selection process is incredibly competitive.

David Garcia, vice president of the CHSA, said: “Our employees’ members work hard and this bursary, by giving something directly to their children, is a perfect way for us to say thank you for their contribution and ongoing commitment.”

Applicants need to submit their completed form, which can be obtained from Linda Belcher, secretary of the CHSA ( or from the CHSA website ( by 29 June 2018. Those shortlisted will be interviewed in July by a selection panel to be led by David Garcia.
