This fund has been established to assist women residing at Duchesne College with the cost of their residential accommodation while they pursue tertiary education.

This bursary serves students from regional or rural Australia who face considerable financial challenges to attend university and who are undertaking a full-time undergraduate program which includes a placement course. The fund is lovingly named after Reverend Mother Joan Percy-Dove, the first Principal of Duchesne College (1937 - 1964), who in her 27 years of leadership, played a significant role in the establishment of the College. For more information about the criteria or to make a gift to this tax-deductible fund please contact Duchesne College within The University of Queensland.
