Three talented and hard-working young people - Lauren Moss, Lewis Baron and Chloe Campbell-Hamilton - have been named as the recipients of the CHSA’s 2017 undergraduate bursaries. They will go to university with a little extra support from the CHSA. Each will now receive a total of £4500 in three installments, paid at the beginning of the first, second and third years of their degrees.
Applicants were assessed by a judging panel, led by CHSA treasurer, David Garcia, according to need, worthiness, endeavor, and overall performance. “We were incredibly impressed by all the applicants,” said David Garcia. “Selecting the final three was harder than ever before as they were all determined young people who have worked hard to achieve their goals. Each of us on the panel independently marked the applicants against the criteria. Chloe, Lauren and Lewis emerged as the successful applicants when the scores were aggregated. We have asked Lewis, Chloe and Lauren to stay in touch with us. We want to hear about their progress and offer support where we can. We also wish the other applicants every success in achieving their ambitions.”
The bursary was open to the sons and daughters of staff of CHSA member companies who, on 1 September 2017, are 18 years or over and commencing their higher education studies this year. The 2018 Bursary will be opened to new applicants in January 2018.
