$500 Scholarship Offer from Smart Cleaning Solutions

Quality, reliability and experience carry quite a bit of weight in the professional cleaning sector. Understanding each client’s unique needs also goes a long way toward not only building a solid reputation but helping the businesses you serve do the same.

Smart Cleaning Solutions is well aware of how deeply companies and corporate brands across Australia depend on their cleaning services to keep them on pace with national standards and up to par in the eyes of the public. Because of an unequalled level of commitment to these aspects, the company has risen to the forefront of its field.

Smart Cleaning Solutions’ team of highly trained, dedicated and experienced professionals has seen firsthand the many changes having unfolded in its genre over the years. Progressively exacting nationwide regulations and increasingly diverse needs among clients drive the industry. From another perspective, the very foundational elements of operating a business have evolved.

Having the education to back up these growing requirements is more important than ever before. In an effort to help foster the up-and-coming generation of leaders and entrepreneurs, Smart Cleaning Solutions has created a $500 scholarship offer for rising students.

Eligibility Requirements

In order to be eligible for the Smart Cleaning Solutions scholarship offer, applicants must

  • Be Australian citizens
  • Currently be enrolled in an accredited school or have been accepted to an institution of higher learning
  • Presently be in good academic standing

Candidates must submit proof of these aspects during the application process along with an essay, the details of which will be explained shortly.

About the Essay

Applicants may choose one of two topics for the basis of their essays:

1) Discuss the concept of “opportunity cost” and/or any marketing distinction(s) potentially relevant to shed insight on the decision-making process of a business manager trying to decide whether to outsource routine business tasks like cleaning or save money by drawing up an internal roster to have staff handle the requirements. Evaluate the pros and cons of the chosen distinctions.

2) Discuss how and why cleanliness and sanitation are critical to a company’s success. This may be done in any way the applicant feels is appropriate. One idea to possibly explore would be looking at different industries and applications, like a multi-site business versus a single site local business (where is the business in its growth phase) or an office situation versus a retail one. Another angle to take would be looking at external and internal factors, such as reflections on brand (external) or the capacity of a company to compete for talent (internal - impacts on human resource management).

Essays should range from 1,200 to 1,500 words in length. Creativity, originality and quality will be determining factors in choosing a winner.
