Christian Brothers College scholarships celebrate the vision of our College Founder Blessed Edmund Rice, who valued access to and engagement in quality Catholic education for all children.

Our scholarships are open to new students and current students of CBC.

Eligible students are expected to demonstrate a positive contribution in all aspects of College life including actively supporting and engaging with the Catholic ethos of the College and co-curricular activities. All CBC scholarships are for the duration of the student’s enrolment at the College and are reviewed annually.
