Q: How many times can I apply for a Competitive Scholarship?
If you have won the Competitive Scholarship for your first year, you are eligible to reapply up to three times as a returning candidate. Applicants who have previously received their first Foresters Competitive Scholarship and have surpassed their three attempts as returning candidate will not be eligible to apply for a new scholarship.
Please refer to the table under the Applications section for further explanation.
Q: Under the circumstances that I’ve applied for a scholarship with my parent/grandparent/legal guardian’s Foresters membership status, and they pass away, am I still entitled to my scholarship award?
If a member passes away after the scholarship is awarded, the scholarship will continue as long as you are covered under another in-force Foresters membership as defined above, AND you continue to meet the criteria as a returning candidate.
Q: What if my parent/grandparent/legal guardian ceases to be a Foresters member during the year I receive my scholarship award?
The scholarship will terminate at the end of any academic year in which the Foresters member, whether it be the scholarship recipient or sponsoring member, ceases to be a Foresters member.
Q: My Foresters plan/policy is coming up for expiry and I need to renew it before applying for the scholarship award. What should I do?
If your Plan is approaching maturity or end of term, contact Customer Services immediately by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have made changes to your plan/policy, (i.e. address change, new term, switching to another Foresters plan/policy etc) check with the Customer Service to ensure the status of your plan/policy, is in-force.
