ICSA is celebrating a gift of £2,500 to The Chartered Secretaries’ Charitable Trust
ICSA is celebrating a gift of £2,500 to The Chartered Secretaries’ Charitable Trust (CSCT) from The Patron’s Fund – the fund set up to acknowledge the work of the charitable organisations for which Her Majesty The Queen acts as a Patron, on the occasion of her 90th birthday.
Frank Curtiss, President of ICSA and Chairman of CSCT, commented: ‘We are delighted to have The Queen as our Patron. This money will help us to establish an annual prize named the Queen Elizabeth II Commonwealth Prize.
‘A prize of £250 will be awarded to the student from one of ICSA’s Associated Territories who obtains the highest mark in the ICSA Chartered Secretaries Qualifying Scheme, a route to obtaining chartered secretary status. CSCT will match the support received from the Patron’s Fund and we hope that this award will inspire students in Commonwealth countries outside the UK, Crown Dependencies and Republic of Ireland.’
