The Bursary Fund

Since its inception some twenty four years ago the Bursary Fund has been a real success story and is a “Jewel in the Crown” of the Catenian Association.

Several thousand young Catholic men and women between the age of sixteen and twenty five have been financially supported to enable them to carry out a variety of projects both in this country and world wide for the benefit of others. In each year, the the Fund supports hundred of projects and can distribute over £50, 000.

The Bursary Fund also provides financial support to hundred of young workers who go on a pilgrimage to Lourdes and commit themselves totally to helping sick pilgrims.

In any one year, over ten thousand young people study at Catholic Schools and Colleges at sixth form level and there are possibly double that number in University or even at work and many of these will aspire to participate in some kind of community project which will benefit others less well off than themselves but currently they do not apply for support from the Bursary Fund.

The Trustees aim over the next five years to raise the number of awards made to young Catholics by one hundred percent.

A concerted effort will be made to increase awareness about the Bursary Fund throughout the Association and by actively encouraging young Catholics to engage in projects that help others. The Fund, and in turn the Association will be helping them to become more secure in their own faith.

The Bursary Fund is regulated in its aims by the Charity Commission and is totally supported by the Brothers of the Catenian Association and receives no external financial support from outside our Association.

It is therefore encumbent upon all Brothers to support the Fund and if all members of our Association pledge £10.00 per year and gift aid this donation, then a sum of over £100,000 will be available to distribute to the applicants.

The Trustees meet every two months to review the hundreds of applications received.
