How to apply for a scholarship

This includes your Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) or equivalent (OP/ Bursary/ A levels/IB etc.) for students entering from secondary school. For students already studying at the University, we will calculate a grade point average from previous tertiary study.

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.

Applicants for financial assistance should write directly to the Principal, enclosing supporting financial information on all sources of income and with a statement of assets, and return this information to the College with their application.
