Educational Award provided much needed financial support
“I applied for the Educational Award grant after having spoken to my Court Secretary about the costs associated with my current studies. Having to fund the cost of travelling from Coventry to Birmingham for 14 weeks was going to be a challenge, along with finding the money to pay for the textbooks I need to support my goal of becoming a registered dietitian.
Thanks to the support from Foresters I have been able to purchase textbooks which include the most up-to-date research for my studies, as well as provide much needed financial support for travelling expenses. Without this grant I would have needed to get a job to help cover these costs, which would have put extra pressure on me as I am working full time at my placement. This grant has allowed me a bit of extra breathing space, meaning that I can concentrate on my studies and not have to worry so much about money.

I would like to thank Foresters for supporting me throughout my studies and thank my Court Secretary for her support when applying for this grant, her work and dedication to helping others, like so many Foresters members, is inspirational.”
