Edna Wieneke Bursary

The Edna Wieneke Bursary was established by the Wieneke family in honour of the late Enda Wieneke, aunt of Fr Peter Wieneke OSA (former Rector of the College and member of the class of ’62).

The Edna Wieneke Bursary seeks to support musically-gifted students by providing assistance with tuition fees and music education fees at Villanova College. Eligible students are those:

  • Whose families desire a Catholic education for their son
  • Who meet the standard enrolment criteria for the College
  • Who, because of financial limitations, would otherwise find it difficult to attend the College
  • Who have demonstrated considerable talent in playing a musical instrument
  • Who have demonstrated a keen enthusiasm to continue their musical education and to be involved in Villanova’s instrumental ensembles

Terry Hendle Tuition Bursary

The Terry Hendle Endowment Trust was established in 1994 and is administered by the Villanova Old Boys’ Association Incorporated (VOBAI).

It was named in honour of Terry Hendle, the only Villanova College alumni to have lost his life in action during the Vietnam War.

Since 1995, VOBAI has donated $46,000 from its proceeds to this fund. There has been one recipient who has completed his schooling, and the fund has a current beneficiary.

The Terry Hendle Bursary seeks to support students by providing assistance with tuition fees. Eligible students are those:

  • Whose families desire a Catholic education for their son
