Accommodation Bursary -St Paul's Wing

In 2015, a generous benefactor of the College inaugurated an annual Bursary of $5,000 to give financial assistance to a potential first year JCU student wishing to reside in the St Paul's Wing of the College but, because of financial circumstances, may not be able to afford the fees.  The Bursary would offset the cost of accommodation at the College.

Any prospective student (male or female) who has applied for a place at the St Paul's Wing of Saints Catholic College, via the JCU Accommodation webpage, can apply for the Accommodation Bursary. The candidate should be able to demonstrate that they (or their parents/guardians) are residents of North Queensland, a member of the Catholic Church and in financial need.  Please read the Terms and Conditions of the Bursary, available via the link below, for more information. 

If you wish to apply for the Bursary please complete the Application Form cover sheet (see link below) and forward it, together with your supporting documentation, to:

The Principal
