Helping you to help others...with €5,000!

Folens Overseas Teaching Fund

Now in its sixth year, the Folens Overseas Teaching Fund is awarding €5,000 to Primary and Post-Primary teachers in Ireland who are committing their time and energies to teaching as part of a volunteer or charitable programme over the summer. The €5,000 is split into five individual awards of €1,000. Each winning candidate will receive €500 to help finance their trip and the balance of €500 will be donated to their programme, overseas teaching school or organisation.
