Br Ronald Fogarty Scholarship

About this scholarship

Brother Ronald Fogarty was a Marist Brother who made a significant and important contribution to the study and practice of Catholic Education in Australia. His published works are relevant, not only to the Catholic and educational sphere of Australian history but also provide insight into the development of Australian society as a whole. This scholarship was established by the Marist Brothers in 2018, to commemorate and acknowledge Br Ronald Fogarty’s life and contribution to Catholic Education in Australia and to encourage pre-service teachers as they prepare for their teaching professions in catholic schools.
