Bursaries

Bursaries have been established to offer the gift of a Downlands education to those for whom full tuition is out of reach.


It is preferred that applications for Bursary assistance are made at the same time as applications for enrolment in the College. All Bursary applicants are required to fill out the Bursary Application Form. Should they be awarded a Bursary, they are required to abide by the Downlands Foundation Limited Bursary Policy.

Noel Mahoney Bursary

The purpose of the Noel Mahoney Bursary is to support students from an agricultural background or from remote areas whose families are suffering hardship.


The student will be expected to be able to bring “something special” to our community in terms of a contribution to College life.

The bursary:

  • will be offered to a student entering Year 10
  • will be renewable, upon satisfactory performance, each year until the student finishes Year 12
  • is not intended to cover all costs incurred in achieving a Downlands education
  • will be means-tested
  • will be awarded at the discretion of the Principal

The Fr Tyson Doneley Bursary has been established to offer the gift of a Downlands education to those for whom full tuition is out of reach. As well as a financial means test, the criteria for awarding the bursary would include a demonstrated aptitude for diverse active involvement in school life that Fr Tyson Doneley himself encouraged and exemplified.


The bursary:

  • will be offered to a new student entering Year 10 or Year 11
  • will be renewable, upon satisfactory performance, each year until the student finishes Year 12
  • is not intended to cover all costs incurred in achieving a Downlands education
  • will be means-tested
  • will be awarded at the discretion of the Principal

DPSA Bursary

The Past Students Bursary will be open to children entering Years 7 to 11, who would benefit from a Downlands College education but for whom full tuition is out of reach.

 

The Principal and the DPSA invite all Downlanders to support the DPSA Bursary Fund. In true MSC spirit, join them in their campaign to change the lives of young people.
