Supporting our Indigenous Residents

In 2019, our ‘mob’ of 85 Indigenous residents leave their home and community to study at various universities in Perth and to mix together with international and Australian residents at St Catherine’s College.

The Dandjoo Darbalung program offers Indigenous residents a custom-designed support program including:

  • An Indigenous cultural space and private study room in the College

  • A dedicated tutoring program for academic support to supplement what is offered at university

  • Support with scholarships

  • A supportive community intent on strengthening and developing identity and cultural leadership, through participation in events such as campfire circles with Elders, cultural leadership training, art projects, music and social events

  • Mentoring other Indigenous students in local and remote schools

2019 Fees (Residential Cost Options)

Living at College is more than just renting a room and St Catherine's offers outstanding value for money. Our priority is for you to be successful and to be part of a fantastic community. The whole experience at College is something which will set you apart from students who live independently.

2019 Scholarships for Indigenous Residents

We want you to join us because you are the best, but you may need some help to get here. We invest $800,000 annually in a range of residential scholarships and bursaries to provide you with the opportunity to pursue a tertiary education whilst living on campus. Scholarships vary in size and provide substantial discounts on fees.

The following scholarships are generously offered in partnership with Woodside:
