Scholarships

All activities in the College contribute to learning and the development of the skills and talents of each individual student.

Supporting full participation in College life, irrespective of financial circumstances is also a fundamental part of the St Columba’s College mission and in this context, we offer a number of scholarships to prospective and current students.

These Academic Excellence Scholarships cover full or part of the tuition fees and are conditional upon sound academic progress and active participation in the extra-curricular life of the College.
