Following the release of this year’s A-Level results, the Jersey Society of Chartered and Certified Accountants (JSCCA) has announced that there are two recipients of its Bursary scheme for 2013.
Former Hautlieu pupil Connie Le Brocq has been awarded a Bursary of £5,000 per annum for the duration of her degree. She is due to commence a three year degree in Business Management at Newcastle University in late September.
In addition, JCG student Amber Harding has also been awarded a bursary of £1,000 per annum to assist her in pursuing her Accounting and Finance degree, which she begins at Exeter University this autumn.
Launched in 2010, the Bursary is designed to financially assist Jersey students in attending an overseas university and pursue a degree in a business-related subject. In addition to Connie and Amber, the JSCCA currently has two bursary students studying in the UK.
This year, the Bursary continued to attract a strong number of applicants. Following an initial screening process, which involved reviewing applicants’ predicted A-Level grades and ability to fund their own tuition and maintenance, a number of applicants were called for interview, with Connie and Amber ultimately being selected as the successful students.
The JSCCA will be running the Bursary scheme again in 2014, and the application process will be open soon. Current A-Level students are being invited to find out more about the scheme as well as career opportunities within Jersey’s accountancy profession, at an open evening being hosted by the JSCCA at Victoria College Great Hall on Wednesday 2nd October from 6pm to 8pm. Those wishing to attend can register their interest by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Andrew Quinn, President of the JSCCA, commented:
“We are delighted to award these bursaries to Connie and Amber who achieved such impressive grades at A-Level and have shown a keen interest in accountancy. Once again, the quality of the applicants this year has been remarkable, and in Connie and Amber we have two students of the highest calibre who the JSCCA is delighted to support. It is important as a profession that we support the business leaders of tomorrow, and therefore I would encourage any student who has an interest in any aspect of the accountancy profession to come and talk to us at our open evening on 2nd October.”
Established in 1974, the JSCCA promotes and supports the accountancy profession in Jersey and has over 750 members from across different accountancy bodies. For more information about the JSCCA, please go to www.jscca.org.
