Applications Now Open for ISSA 2024–2025 Scholars
ISSA Scholars, an ISSA Charities™ signature program, has opened its scholarship applications for the 2024–2025 academic year. Employees of all ISSA member companies and their families are encouraged to apply now through April 12, 2024. There are also opportunities for member companies to donate to a scholarship fund or develop a new fund to support our efforts.
“Our commitment is not just to financial support but to nurturing the future leaders of the cleaning industry. As ISSA Scholars continues to invest in the potential of bright minds, we proudly extend scholarships to deserving students, empowering them to reach new heights in higher education,” said ISSA Charities Director of Development Sandy Wolfrum. “We’re eager to see this year’s exceptional applicants!”
On an annual basis, ISSA Scholars awards scholarships to students who showcase outstanding academic and leadership qualities. These scholarships serve as a beacon of support, alleviating the financial strain of tuition for individuals affiliated with ISSA member companies, including employees and their immediate family members, as they embark on their educational journeys at accredited four-year colleges and universities.
This year, ISSA Hygieia Network, an ISSA Charities signature program dedicated to the advancement and retention of women in the cleaning industry, has increased the ISSA Hygieia Network Scholarship from US$3,500 to $5,000. Applicants for this scholarship must be a female employee of an active ISSA Member company and have a minimum two years of experience in the cleaning industry. The funds can be used toward any level of undergraduate or post-graduate degrees.
With the support of generous ISSA member companies, ISSA Scholars awarded $142,000 in financial aid to 49 students in 2023. Member companies looking to provide support can donate to existing funds or develop their own scholarship award. ISSA announces the complete list of scholarship recipients and company sponsors each year.
