200K€ in Grants and Scholarships for Outstanding Students

Why a Forward Impact Award?

We believe future leaders must go beyond academic excellence, demonstrate drive and make a difference in the field that matters to them.

At Forward College, we are looking for exceptional students who have demonstrated amazing engagement along their studies. We believe these achievements are as important as your school reports and should be nurtured during higher education.

We are looking for unique and outstanding personalities.

What Are The Awards?

A total of €200,000 will be awarded to the winners in the form of:

  • Grants of €1,000 based on the merits of the project.
  • Scholarships up to €45,000 based on the merits of the project and the assessment of financial needs.
