ROSEMONT, Ill.—July 21, 2022— ISSA Scholars, a signature ISSA Charities program – the charitable arm of ISSA, today announced the recipients of the ISSA Scholars 2022-2023 Scholarship Awards. The generous contributions of several individuals and ISSA member companies provided 54 scholarships to new and continuing college students totaling US$155,500 in financial aid.
“The past two years have presented hardships for us all, but we’re fortunate to be able to give back to those pursuing their dreams through higher education,” said Sandy Wolfrum, ISSA Charities Director of Development. “We’re so appreciative of the organizations that made these scholarships possible and hope to provide more opportunities that introduce students to the essential world of cleaning.”
ISSA Scholars provides financial aid to help students achieve their dreams of higher education. Since 1988, the organization has awarded nearly $4 million in financial aid to over 1,000 ISSA member company employees and their immediate family members. Scholarships relieve the burden of tuition for college and university students and introduce new professionals to career opportunities in the cleaning industry.
