CIPS Bursary Application Open Until end of August

Admin | Education | , ,

For people globally who are undergoing hardship

A bursary of up to £1,000 awarded to procurement and supply students outside the UK which the Foundation believes are in the most need of aid to start or continue their procurement and supply education.

The funds for this bursary will be paid on to the successful applicants’ CIPS account. It can be used towards any CIPS product, and can also be used to pay any venue fees at CIPS approved exam centres.

What is hardship?

The term ‘hardship’ will mean different things to different people, across countries with different standards of living and challenges. The CIPS Foundation defines hardship as anything which interferes with a person’s ability to progress with CIPS qualifications, such as illness, financial troubles, etc.

In order to receive the bursary it will be necessary to show how the funds you receive will be used to alleviate your hardship. This may be by directly paying for CIPS products which you are struggling to afford, or may be indirectly by freeing up funds for use on other things.


Applicants have to be nominated by a CIPS registered study centre from outside the UK, with each study centre permitted to submit 1 application per application window.

Please note that you do not need to be studying with a CIPS registered study centre in order for them to nominate you.

Applicants must also have worked for a minimum of a year in procurement and supply or have previously taken at least two CIPS assessments.
