The Old Collegians’ Association and its members provide a number of scholarship and bursary opportunities to support Old Boy families who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford a Brisbane Boys’ College education for their son, as well as provide opportunities to graduating boys of the College to further their education.
If you’re an Old Collegian looking to speak to someone at the College about establishing a scholarship or bursary in your name, please contact the Development Office for a confidential discussion.

The OCA Bursary provides financial assistance to Old Collegians so they may have the opportunity to continue the rich tradition of sending their sons to Brisbane Boys’ College.
