SVP Carlow Education Fund
24 September 2021
The St. Vincent de Paul Carlow Education Fund was founded four years ago with the aim of assisting students to progress to third level education. We are specifically targeting students who because of issues of affordability are effectively excluded from pursuing a third level qualification. The current Government education grants are not adequate to cover accommodation and equipment costs, which can mean that students with limited means cannot afford the costs of moving on to obtain higher level qualification.
Since our inception four years ago we have assisted over 80 students in the Carlow area. The level of help has varied from purchase of laptops to subsidising accommodation costs. With your help we hope to continue this support.
