BPS boosts student program
|BPS Technology has expanded its scholarship program to include staff and their children at the recently acquired Entertainment Publications.
The scholarship has been renamed BPS Technology Scholarship to reflect the new arrangement.
It covers 50 per cent of course fees for staff or children of staff studying at Bond University and is offered to six students each year.
BPS says it has provided more than $1 million in fee support to undergraduate and postgraduate students since the scholarship was established in 2009.
Bartercard Australia chief executive Clive van Deventer said 24 people have graduated from Bond University thanks to the financial support in the past eight years.
"Bartercard has nurtured and supported small business operators and helped prepare their children and employees to become future business leaders with the skills and tools to succeed in a fast and competitive market," he said.
Scholarship recipient Tani Stubbs, 22, will complete a Bachelor of Business at Bond University next year majoring in management.
She has also started a charity which sets up sister-school relationships, fits out classrooms and develops hospitals overseas."EDGE (Everyone Deserves a Global Education) works with suppliers in Australia to fitout schools and hospitals in Tonga and Samoa with essential classroom and medical equipment," she said.
