The Biblical Foundation

The Biblical Foundation is part of the Centre for Faith Enrichment and has a twofold mission: to publish daily Gospel reflections and to offer scholarships for biblical studies through the B.J. Hickey Biblical Foundation.

The Biblical Foundation’s daily Gospel reflections offer spiritual nourishment to hundreds of people throughout the world each day. They can be found here.

Scholarships from the B.J. Hickey Biblical Foundation are offered to lay people, residing in the Archdiocese of Perth. They are for biblical studies of any length at any level, locally or overseas (such as Jerusalem or Rome). You don’t need to be an academic – just someone with a desire to know the Scriptures better and to help others with that knowledge.

If you are thinking of applying for a scholarship for 2018, you may find it helpful to click here to see the 2018 Scholarship Application Details and here to see the 2018 Scholarship Application Form. Application forms will need to be submitted by Friday 24th November, 2017.
