Education » Bursaries


Unfortunately, diocesan bursaries have had to be discontinued. Please contact your pastor.


CWL – Parish and Diocese

There are two annual $500 Bursaries available from the Nelson Diocesan Catholic Women's League. One bursary gives precedence to applicants entering General Courses, and the other is for applicant's entering the Medical Sciences field.  The applicant's mother or grandmother must be a member in good standing of the CWL Council in the Diocese of Nelson for two years, including the current year.  Applicant must be a Catholic student whose parents/ grandparents reside in Nelson Diocese.   Contact a member of the CWL in your parish for further information.

Knights of Columbus

Similarly, parish or diocesan KC organizations may offer bursaries.  Contact local members of the KC.

St. Vincent de Paul Society

Some parish conferences of the St. Vincent de Paul Society may offer bursaries.  An example is that of St. Theresa Parish, Kelowna  which offers $500 for a university student who is from a family who has a member in the Society.  Check with your local parish SVdePaul conference.
