BURSARIES

In addition to scholarships, some financial assistance is available to residents in the form of bursaries, covering a portion of College fees. These bursaries are intended to assist students whose financial situation may inhibit them from living in College. Applications for bursaries include a disclosure of present income. Only current residents are eligible to apply for bursaries.

Bursaries have been made possible thanks to donations from former residents, parents and other benefactors. Further information is available from the Bursar, Mr Phillip Pragasam.
