St Mary’s College has a number of scholarships on offer to students.

St Mary’s College is a Catholic specialist school for students who are deaf or hard of hearing in the Dominican tradition. Through our scholarship program, we aim to provide for families who would not ordinarily be able to access an education with us without financial assistance. The College awards scholarships on an annual basis. Available scholarships include:

Equity Scholarship
Dominican Scholarship

    Scholarships may carry remission of between 33% and 90% of tuition fees with the length of duration offered between 3 and 6 years, depending on individual circumstances.

    A number of bursaries are available to families and teachers seeking to enter the field of Deaf Education. Enquiries regarding the gifting of bursaries should be directed to the Principal.

    Recognising the great friendship and links between the Dominican Sisters and Clare Winter, a bursary has been set up at St Mary’s College by the Sisters to enable a student to gain access to a St Mary’s College education where this may have been prevented as a result of financial hardship. The bursary, known as the Clare Winter Bursary, is in the gift of the Principal.

    St Mary’s College offers a bursary to support teachers who have completed an Australian Catholic University or other teaching course to undertake the Master of Learning Intervention, specialising in Deaf Education. The purpose for this offering is to enhance the number and quality of teachers with Teacher of the Deaf qualifications who are available to work at St Mary’s College as well as the wider Deaf Education sector.
