To address the needs of cleaning professionals during the COVID-19 pandemic, Kimberly-Clark Professional is excited to announce a new scholarship program to help smaller cleaning organizations provide critical training on infectious disease prevention and control measures for their employees. The program is in collaboration with  ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, and the  Global Biorisk Advisory Council  (GBAC), a Division of ISSA.

 This course teaches cleaning professionals to prepare for, respond to and recover from bio hazards in the workplace. Participants will learn infection and contamination control measures for infectious disease outbreak situations such as the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).

Scholarships are available for the first 10,000 eligible cleaning professionals, with priority placement for building service contractors who qualify as a small business. Additionally, the program has a goal to award 50% of scholarships to females. Up to five scholarships may be granted to a single enterprise; each cleaning professional must apply individually.

Please see the  official terms and conditions.

Additionally, scholarship recipients may elect to participate as mentees in the  ISSA Hygieia Network Mentoring Program with special mentor participation from Kimberly-Clark Professional employees.
