Scholarships to live at St Catherine's

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

About our Scholarships

Scholarships are awarded only at the start of each year to outstanding applicants who will be assessed on academic achievement, significant service to the community and sporting or artistic achievement.

Criteria exist for each scholarship and by completing one application form you will be considered for the most appropriate scholarship.

You must also have formally applied to the College and have been accepted to receive a scholarship to live at St Catherine's.
