Jesuit Social Services’ Student Support Fund

Jesuit Social Services is committed to working with people who experience significant social and economic disadvantage, to engage in further education, training and employment. Many people in these circumstances need support to engage in learning, to succeed in their learning programs, and to continue on to further training and employment.

In some cases, meeting the cost of training course fees may impose additional hardship. In order to assist students of Jesuit Community College who due to financial or other forms of hardship might not be able to meet the cost of their Jesuit Community College Course tuition fees, Jesuit Social Services has established the Student Support Fund.

Applications for assistance through the Student Support Fund are open to students who require financial support to meet the cost of their Jesuit Community College Course tuition fees. The establishment of this fund draws on the rich tradition of Jesuit education committed to ‘care of the whole person’ and development of active and informed citizens.

Applications are open to be received all year round. They can be handed to your Jesuit Community College Trainer/Assessor or enrolment officer, emailed to courses@jss.org.au, sent by post to PO Box 1141, Collingwood VIC 3066, or lodged by hand at Jesuit Community College, 1 Langridge St Collingwood.

Before you apply for this financial support, you should consider alternative funding options.

Applicants must:

  • be studying a course at Jesuit Community College;
  • be an Australian citizen, or
  • hold permanent Residency status, or
  • hold a permanent humanitarian visa;
  • be a Centrelink Concession Card holder; or,
  • hold a current New Zealand passport; and,
  • demonstrate adequate academic progress for the duration of their funding.

For any queries please contact Jesuit Community College by email at courses@jss.org.au or by phone on (03) 9415 8700
