Catholic Youth Ministry offer a full scholarship to Acts2COME to study youth ministry at certificate IV level each year. Please contact Anita Parker at CYM for further information – Anita.Parker@highgate-perthcatholic.org.au.

The Biblical Commission, run by Archbishop Hickey, also offers scholarships for study. Acts 2 College is one of the institutions for which scholarships are available. The Biblical Commission can be contacted through the Archdicesan Office in Cathedral Square. Applications for this scholarship close on 31 October each year.

A number of other Catholic organisations are prepared to support students studying for ministry. These do not have any connection to the college but may consider students for their funding. These include Knights of the Southern Cross and the Catenian Association (http://catenianprovince20.com), the latter of which has a fund specifically for scholarships for young people who wish to attend organisations such as ours.

Another organisation which provides funding for ministry is the Union of Catholic Apostolate (UAC), founded by St Vincent Pallotti in Rome in 1835. It endeavors to spread the concept of a Church in which all people are actively involved. The UAC offers scholarships/study grants to enable lay people to further their understanding and skills in leadership/ministry or a specialised activity which is consistent with UAC aims and objectives. An application form for the scholarship/study grant is available from: The Secretary, Vincent Pallotti Scholarship Trust, 85 Studley Park Road, Kew, Victoria, 3101; or by emailing patron2@dodo.com.au
