We need your help! US Friends of Latymer (USFOL) are currently in the process of raising $30,000 to cover the fourth USFOL Scholarship which provides 100% of the annual school fees for a Sixth Form pupil who would otherwise not be able to take up their hard-won place at Latymer. Our first USFOL scholar, Cassandra, graduated from Latymer in 2014 and went on to study English Literature at the University of Sussex. The second scholar is in her third year at University College London (UCL) and the third scholar is in her first year at Oxford University studying Law.
The fourth USFOL scholar, like his predecessors, could never have taken up his hard won place at Latymer without 100% fee remission. He recently started in the Sixth Form studying Maths, Geography and Economics, and has already made an impact in the school by playing an active part in the extracurricular life of the School as well.
“The USFOL Bursary gave me an amazing, and otherwise out-of-reach, opportunity to develop and grow in confidence to the point at which I could face university head-on and use the skills I was taught at Latymer to achieve high marks in my university assessments. I continue to be very grateful.”
All gifts, large and small, are needed now to cover the fees for the next USFOL scholar. 100% of your gift will go to funding this award. It would be wonderful to be able to say that our next scholarship was funded by the majority of Latymerians living in the US. In other words, it is your participation that matters, not the amount you give! Thank you in advance for your generosity.
