For Alexis Boeskool, it was a given that she would apply for a Foresters Competitive Scholarship. The Michigan-based student comes from a family that has always focused on finding ways to give back. Together they have participated in volunteer opportunities through Foresters for many years. From helping to create a healthy living program for a cardiology practice, to cleaning and painting rooms for homeless families and planning and preparing meals at her local Ronald McDonald House®, Alexis’ volunteerism has helped and inspired her local community.

We believe in the success that education can bring to students, families and communities. This is why every year Foresters offers 250 tuition scholarships of up to $2,000 per year for up to four years to eligible students pursuing post-secondary education.

For students like Alexis, winning a Foresters scholarship means being able to pursue her educational goals while continuing to focus on a purpose-driven future as she finds new ways to reach out and give back.

With scholarship winners pursuing careers from hospitality services, journalism and forensic science to graphic design, plumbing, nursing and business management, there is a bright future for these students and their families – and for the communities who will benefit from their continued desire to be more and do more.

At Foresters, members enjoy a range of unique benefits including renewable tuition scholarships for themselves or their family members. Click here to learn how Foresters help members achieve their financial goals while making a difference in the community.

161,028 volunteer hours were given back to local communities by our 2017 scholarship winners.

“The scholarship has been a huge help for me – especially because it was over the four years. I was able to focus on my studies and discover my career interests.“
