The Bursary Fund


Need more cash to cover your expenses?

If you are a Catholic aged between 16 and 25 you may be eligible for a grant from the Catenian Association's Bursday Fund. This is to help with your expenses.

Your project must have a clear benefit for others as well as widening your life experience.

Example of where the Bursary Fund has helped

New Orleans.

Girls from the Ursuline Schools in the UK spent two weeks in New Orleans helped to rebuild and decorate houses lost during Hurricane Katrina.

I know that many of us felt when we travelled to America, we were just going to be rebuilding houses, but when we returned, we had learned so much more; we were rebuilding homes, but more importantly lives and families.

Therefore, I would just like to say a massive thank you to the Catenian Bursary Fund, for their generous support and which helped me travel to new Orleans and help people who truly deserved and needed our help.
