Scholarship Information

St Columban’s scholarships and bursaries allow young people from diverse backgrounds the opportunity to study in a vibrant community that upholds Catholic ideals, and provides them with more options for academic, co-curricular, and vocational development.  For many parents, choosing the right secondary school to send their children to can be a difficult and confusing experience, but Principal Ann Rebgetz offers some sage advice for parents “consider a College where there is ample choice for students for their academic and vocational pathways that provide as many options as possible for their future.”


 Applications for the Scholarship and Bursary Program for Year 7 for the 2019 academic year are now open.  The program offers both full and partial scholarships to the College for prospective Year 7 students for 3 years, with the choice to apply to further their Columban’s education when reaching Year 10.  Students must complete a Level One ACER test to qualify for consideration of a scholarship. The scholarship test is to be held at the College on  SATURDAY 26 MAY 2018 FROM 9.00AM TO 12.00PM.
