Bursary Program

St. Bonaventure’s College instituted a Bursary program to provide financial assistance towards the cost of tuition for those in need. Application can be made through the President’s Office. The identities of successful recipients are kept confidential. The Bursary Program is designed to ensure that no child is unable to attend the school because of inability to pay. It allows families of all income levels an opportunity to attend the school.

The Bursary Program is funded separate and apart from any tuition fees paid by the parents. All money comes from individual and collective sources outside the school.
