Saint Ignatius of Loyola wanted Jesuit schools to be open to all people, irrespective of their financial means. Xavier College, together with the Xavier College Foundation, is therefore committed to offering bursary support for prospective students.

The principle criterion for the provision of a bursary is a demonstrable, means-tested inability to afford a Xavier education. The number of bursaries and percentage of bursary support offered to prospective students is dependent on the bursary application, financial application and funds available for that particular year.

Applications for 2019 will close on Thursday 29 March 2018.

For further information and application forms please contact the Head of Admissions, Di Odgers by emailing d.odgers@xavier.vic.edu.au or phone 03 9854 5307.
