The Catenian Charity Inc. Scholarship
Please note that this is awarded for the duration of the recipient’s studies and applications will open in 2017 for the 2018 Scholarship.
The Catenians – "strengthening Catholic family life through friendship and faith" - have established this scholarship to assist Catholic students who are in necessitous circumstances, enrolled at a Western Australian tertiary institution or tertiary residential college whose educational opportunities are limited, for example, because of financial need, distance, or responsibility for others, such as the ill or elderly.
The aim of the Scholarship is to advance the interests of young Catholics and to assist them in the choice or pursuit of a career. The student will have demonstrated drive and commitment to achieve academically, despite financial hardship, or other personal difficulty, in order to continue their studies. The student will have completed at least 1 year of full time study towards their Bachelor degree. The Scholarship will be paid to the recipient, if there is satisfactory academic progress, for the duration of their studies. The student must use the money to discharge his/her liability to the institution or college.
A person is in necessitous circumstances where they don't have sufficient financial resources to have a modest standard of living in Australia. An indicator of this would be where a person's level of income is such that they are eligible to receive income-tested government benefits. Other indicators are health needs (such as sickness or disability) and family responsibilities. Such non-financial needs can cause financial necessity.
Further information regarding the application form and scholarship conditions are available by contacting Bec Wood, Deputy Head of College, on 9386 0111.
