The Dean C Bowker Scholarship

Entry is open to all boys entering Year 7 in 2022

This scholarship recognises the commitment and dedication of old boy, former student and staff member Dean Bowker (1955). Dean played a significant role in the establishment of the Christ Church Foundation as well as formally engaging the ‘old boy’ alumni network. Under the leadership of Headmaster Tony Hill, Dean went on to establish the first fundraising office in the School.

Covering 50% of tuition fees, this scholarship is open to Australian students who meet the required criteria and, while subject to annual review, is tenable for the duration of the boy’s education at Christ Church. Applicants are considered on their ability to benefit from a Christ Church education and must clearly demonstrate financial hardship.

This scholarship is made possible by generous donations from our school community through the Old Boys’ Association Scholarship Trust.
