Enterprise Rent-A-Car generously provides grants and other supports to students who are also lone parents to help with their education. We’re extremely grateful for their continued provision of €3,000 for grants to lone-parent students on the Access Foundation Programme at TU Dublin. This year, the grant was divided amongst four applicants.
“Enterprise Rent-A-Car Ireland is part of the larger Enterprise Holdings – the world’s largest transportation solution provider and uniquely, a family-owned business since 1957. As a family-owned business, we are driven by a core set of founding values and as a company we strive to live those values in our business every day! One of our founding values is a commitment to strengthening our communities, one neighbourhood at a time. TU Dublin’s Access Foundation Programme and its Lone Parent Grant is a fantastic example of an organisation commitment to strengthening the local communities and Enterprise is delighted to support TU Dublin in this unique and worthwhile initiative.” – Leslee O’Loughlin, Group HR Manager
