We are determined that students at mountain schools should pursue their studies as far as possible, fulfilling both their ambitions and potential. Our Fellowships programme, incorporating scholarship and mentoring support, enables children from the very poorest backgrounds to complete their education and proceed to higher learning opportunities.
Awards are made to students where the difficulties posed, both financially and socially, would otherwise prohibit them from extending their learning and achieving their full potential. Our Fellows always demonstrate a determination to do well and to help others in the future. Their successes doubtless encourage other students to pursue their dreams and build a life beyond the cycle of rural poverty experienced by previous generations.
