Guernsey U6 pupils can apply for Collins Stewart bursary to 27 April

April 2nd, 2012 by Collins Stewart Wealth Management

Two Guernsey students will receive bursaries from Collins Stewart Wealth Management to support them through their first three years of university.

Collins Stewart’s bursary scheme began in 2009 when they selected two students after receiving numerous applications. The current students are now coming to the end of their three year bursary which has included work experience during the university holidays with the local wealth manager.

Collins Stewart is now encouraging current upper sixth students to apply for the bursaries irrespective of what subject they plan to study.

As in the previous intake, Collins Stewart is looking to support one student studying for a finance-related degree and another for a degree outside of finance. The only stipulation is that they achieve 300 UCAS points which is equivalent to three B grade A-levels.

Charlie Roger, Head of Collins Stewart in Guernsey said “it’s important that businesses support local students who want to continue their studies.”

“Going to university is increasingly expensive for local students and it’s important that these costs are not prohibitive because we need graduates to ensure Guernsey’s finance industry remains healthy. Local businesses need to do what they can to ensure students achieve a high level of education and to encourage students to return to the island when they graduate,” he said.

Details of the bursary will be available from the careers departments in the Grammar School, Elizabeth College and Ladies College or by contacting the Guernsey Careers Service. Closing date for entries is 27 April 2012.
