In some cases, students need to travel so far to attend school that simply providing transportation for them is not enough. In recognition of this, rural high schools frequently have dormitories for students who are unable to make the daily commute. However, many parents are unable to fund the costs associated with dorm life, including meals at school. Student assistance then becomes essential.
Forum Foundation provides subsidies for students whose parents cannot afford to have their children live in a school dormitory. In 2012 alone Forum Foundation funded room and board for 130 students at two high schools, none of whom would have been able to attend high school otherwise.
