The Bishop Manning Support Fund provides full or part bursaries to assist families in genuine need who desire a Catholic school education for their children, but for whom the cost is out of reach.
The aim of this educational initiative is to help ensure Catholic education is accessible to all families.
Donations will help cover the cost of school fees, excursions and a uniform allowance for students in need of financial assistance. Funds are granted equitably based on genuine need and the number of bursaries available is limited by public donations received.
The Support Fund is managed by a committee of parish and Catholic Education representatives. Administrative support is provided by Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta.
The closing date for support applications for the next year is 25 October
Apply for Support
Support Fund applications need to be submitted through the local Parramatta Diocese Catholic school at which you wish to enrol your child. A school enrolment form needs to be completed at the same time so that the school may determine that it can properly accommodate your child if support is granted.
Applications are considered on a quarterly basis by the Support Fund and normal school enrolment criteria apply.FIND A SCHOOL SUPPORT FUND APPLICATION PACK
