How to apply for a financial support (a college bursary)

Bursaries help students who may need extra financial assistance to live in residence at JCH. All applications for bursaries are kept strictly confidential to the College, and JCH bursaries are provided confidentially so that only the student, their parent, and the College is aware that a bursary has been awarded.
