Each year, Marist Regional College awards bursaries to five current students in Year 10 and three students that are new to the College for the following year. The bursary is to the value of 50% discount on the student’s net tuition fees in both their Year 11 and 12 education at Marist Regional College.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

  • The bursary will continue during the recipients schooling at Marist Regional College unless their enrolment is withdrawn. A high standard is promoted and encouraged for bursary recipients.
  • In instances where a recipient leaves Marist Regional College to transfer to another local College to continue their education, families may be required to pay back the bursary funds that have been applied to their tuition expenses to date directly to Marist Regional College. The circumstances of the withdrawal will be taken into consideration and at the discretion of the Principal.
  • In cases where families are required to relocate and therefore enrolment is withdrawn, the bursary will simply discontinue.
  • Recipients of the bursary are expected to positively apply themselves to all aspects of their education and College life. This could be demonstrated by their application to studies, positive attitude, and support and encouragement of others. In instances where a bursary recipient does not make satisfactory progress, fails to embrace the College mission and values or does not cooperate in all aspects of their education, the Principal may temporarily or permanently withdraw the bursary.
  • Bursaries can be reviewed at the Principal’s discretion.
