The Jersey branch of STEP is to fund a bursary to mark the 25th anniversary since the organisation was established in the Island.

The bursary, in the sum of £12,000, will give financial assistance to three students studying in Jersey for a Financial Services degree for the academic year commencing September 2017.

There are currently two financial services degree courses available in Jersey – the BA (Hons) Financial Services offered by University College Jersey (Highlands) and the BSc (Hons) International Financial Services offered by Jersey International Business School. But there are currently no bursaries specific to students studying for those courses.

Explaining the thinking behind the award, Oana Crisan STEP Jersey’s Student Liaison Officer said: ‘Successful students are the future of the wealth management industry in Jersey. STEP is committed to providing professional development so we felt that supporting students in this way would be a fitting way to celebrate the branch’s silver anniversary. Furthermore, we hope to encourage students to join the fiduciary services industry in the Island on completion of their studies.’

The bursary will be divided into three awards of £6,000, £3,500 and £2,500. To apply, students will be asked to submit an essay and a personal statement. The closing date for applications is 29 May 2017 and the successful applicants will be informed in July.
