The Cleaning Authority CARES Scholarship
At The Cleaning Authority, our franchise locations recognize the value of education and support their employees in their pursuit for higher education. Over the years, multiple locations have done work to assist their employees in going to school whether that has been through flexible work schedules or tuition assistance. After seeing this great work across the system, the commitment to education has extended to The Cleaning Authority CARES.
Employees of The Cleaning Authority, along with their children and spouses, have the opportunity each year to apply for The Cleaning Authority CARES scholarship to assist them in furthering their education. Each year, ten recipients are honored with the scholarship in the amount of $1,000, which can be used towards the cost of tuition, books, or any other fees at an accredited university, college, trade, or technical school.
Any employee of The Cleaning Authority who has been employed for a minimum of twelve months as of February 28, 2020, their spouse, or their child working to further their education can apply for a scholarship. Learn more about employment opportunities at The Cleaning Authority.
The 2020 application period runs October 1, 2019 through January 31, 2020. Recipients will be announced in April 2020. If you are a current employee of a location of The Cleaning Authority, speak with the office staff for more information.
