The Jessie Hope Paterson Scholarship

Applications for 2020 will open in September 2019.

In 2005 the Wesley College Foundation awarded the Inaugural Jessie Hope Paterson Scholarship.

This scholarship has been established through the generous gift of Ms Cathy Bray, a resident of the College from 1972 – 1974 in memory of her mother Jessie Hope Bray (nee Paterson) who died when Cathy was 6 months old and her brothers were aged 4 – 16 years.

The scholarship is to be awarded to a student who has:

  • suffered the death of a close friend or family member or has experienced emotional trauma, and
  • who, but for the scholarship would be unable to attend Wesley College

The scholarship will be awarded by Cathy Bray on the recommendation of the Master and the Scholarships’ Committee.

The scholarship to the value of $8900, taken as a discount against Wesley College residential fees.
