Scholarship Scheme Winner: Chloe Fitzgerald - Member First Credit Union


We got back in touch with 2021's Paddy Gerrard Memorial Scholarship Scheme winners to see how they're getting on since winning.

Chloe Fitzgerald started her first year of her Masters in Social Work in September of this year and was delighted when she received the call that she was chosen by MFCU as one of our Scholarship Scheme winners. We asked her a few questions to see how she has been getting on and here’s what she said:

What has been your favourite part of the course so far?

My favourite part of the course so far was meeting new friends and being able to be on campus.

What are you looking forward to most about the year ahead in college?

I am most looking forward to starting my placement.

How has the MFCU Scholarship Scheme helped you with your studies this year?

The scholarship has helped me in so many ways. It helped me buy some books that I needed for the course as well as paying off some of the fees.

What would you say to other students that are considering applying for next year’s MFCU Scholarship Scheme?

I would tell someone who is considering applying for the scholarship to go for it you have nothing to loose and be honest with how the scholarship will help as you go forward with your studies.


As part of our Scholarship Scheme, applicants must be registered MFCU members for at least three months. Therefore we recommend that students join us at the beginning of the year.  You can join us completely online through the link below:
