St Brendan's College appreciates there are many families who may wish to send their son to St Brendan's College for their secondary education, however financial considerations may not always make this an easy option. The College offers Edmund Rice Bursaries to support families whose personal circumstances may warrant financial support to cover enrolment fees. In 2019 the St Brendan's College Old Boys' Foundation also launched the inaugural Scholarship Program to attract and retain students of outstanding abilities in a range of fields.
Edmund Rice Bursaries are available to parents when a demonstrated need exists due to financial circumstances. Our Edmund Rice Bursaries are not a one size fits all bursary, but are based on a formula which includes information on family circumstances (one or two parent), the number of children, employment status and housing costs. Applications are to be submitted on the relevant form to the Business Manager and will be treated confidentially. A completed Enrolment Application must be received before an Edmund Rice Bursary will be considered. Supporting documentation including pay slips, latest taxation return and a Centrelink Statement must accompany the application. This information will be kept in strict confidence and will be reviewed by the Business Manager and Finance Staff only.
The primary objective of the Scholarship Program is to attract and retain, at St Brendan’s College, students of outstanding academic ability and/or those students who excel in particular fields. All scholarships will be granted with the intent to increase and broaden the growth and success of the greater student body by the inclusion of individuals with exceptional abilities in particular areas.
Successful candidates will be offered a scholarship of $1,250 annually for two (2) years (ie. $2,500 total), with the second year’s funding conditional upon continued performance in the student’s nominated field. Specifically, the following scholarships will be offered:
** Please note. Acknowledging the generosity of the Foundation, St Brendan's College will mirror the program as outlined and funded by the Foundation in Years 9 - 11 and provide a similar scholarship for Years 7 & 8.
Separately (and additionally), a “Foundation Scholarship” (valued at $2,500 and awarded at the sole discretion of the Foundation upon recommendation from the Principal) will be awarded no more than once annually to a worthy candidate.
Applications for the inaugural 2019 SBC Old Boys' Foundation Scholarship have now closed. We thank all candidates for their effort in submitting applications in 2019.
