The Christ’s College Old Boys’ Association (CCOBA) Scholarships are made at the sole discretion of the Committee to boys of ability to enable them to start or remain at College.
Criteria considered include:
- The character of applicants and their potential to make a positive contribution to the school
- The academic proficiency of applicants
- The financial position of the applicant’s parents or guardians
Scholarships may be awarded to a boy who has been granted admission to the school, or to a boy who is already attending the school and whose parents need financial assistance so that his schooling may be completed.
All applicants will be considered, although preference will be given to sons of Old Boys
Conventionally awards are made for one year at a time only, the goal being to allow a boy to stay at College during a time of unique financial stress.
Awards will be for a percentage of tuition fees, generally not more than 40%.
The Robert Field-Dodgson Memorial Fund was established in 2002 to commemorate the life of one of the school’s finest music teachers, Robert Field-Dodgson, who taught at College from 1952 to 1985. The purpose of this musical scholarship is to encourage boys with abilities and interest in music. It is awarded annually on the recommendation of the school’s Music Director.
CCOBA Scholarship Fund
The fund has a portfolio of investments that generates the income to provide scholarships for successful applicants. The objective is to increase the number of scholarships awarded each year. Contributions to the fund from Old Boys are therefore always welcome.
