As part of being a CIPS member they often send various updates via email. One the caught my eye was the Foundation Update – the good news is that there are scholarships available for those who are undergoing hardship, are pursuing CIPS and who have a passion for procurement.
Not many professional organizations that I know give scholarships. Read on more details here
The CIPS Foundation helps people from around the world who do not have access to procurement and supply education because of personal hardship outside their control. The one that struck interest for me and friends across Africa is the CIPS Foundation International Bursary. A £1,000 bursary awarded to procurement and supply students outside the UK which the Foundation believes are in the most need of aid.
Some of the other scholarships require you to be living in the UK however the opportunity is there either way open to the public. How many of you knew CIPS offer scholarships for their courses? Know someone who could use a helping hand with this info?
