The Workplace Solutions Association (WSA) has opened applications for its annual scholarships.

Employees and immediate family members of all WSA member companies are eligible to apply until 31 March. Candidates must have graduated from high school or its equivalent before 1 July of the year in which they would use the scholarship and have an academic record sufficient to be accepted by an accredited college, junior college, technical institute, or accredited trade school. Students currently enrolled full time in college or graduate school are not eligible.

“Continuing education is necessary to be competitive in today’s job market,” said WSA President Charlie Kennedy. “We encourage all member companies to share this opportunity with their employees and help our students enhance their skills and have access to better opportunities in the workplace.”

Created more than 50 years ago, the WSA Scholarship Fund has now awarded more than $2.8 million in scholarships to families of office products and office furniture dealers and is supported entirely through individual and member contributions. The fund recognised 30 college students receiving one-year scholarships in the 2023-2024 academic year.

With the WSA now under ISSA ownership, going forward, the WSA scholarship programme will be hosted and administered by ISSA Scholars, a division of ISSA Charities. More details can be found here.
