Bursary funds to assist students on courses at Maryvale Institute with tuition fees, books, learning resources and course-related expenses. These funds are vital for many people who would like to study with Maryvale but cannot find enough money from their own resources or their local church.

Easy access to courses remains important in Maryvale’s mission of evangelization: not only making basic catechesis readily available in parishes, but also enabling those who are called to pursue further and higher study to do so. Although Maryvale fees remain small, especially when compared to those for secular courses, some keen and suitable individuals are still not able to afford the cost of course fees and learning materials, and often parish or diocesan sponsorship is not possible either. Therefore, Maryvale is continuing to search for grants and endowments for student bursaries. In addition to a small endowment for fees for women students given by the Stella house Trust in 2004, there has been a gradual increase in the funds available. In 2008 the bursary fund received £18,000, including grants from The Newman Association and the Park House Trust. More funds for bursaries would provide additional opportunities for those called to personal growth, confident explanation of the faith and revitalization of Catholic witness. We are aiming for an annual bursary fund £50,000.
