The Bishop Manning Scholarship Fund provides full or part scholarships to assist families in genuine need who desire a Catholic school education for their children, but for whom the cost is out of reach. If you know of such a family please encourage them to contact their local Catholic school to enquire about a scholarship.
Normal school enrolment criteria apply and all scholarships are subject to periodic review.
School enrolment forms are available from the local Catholic school at which parents / guardians wish to enrol their child. Click here to search for schools in the Parramatta Diocese system.
