125 Years Scholarships - Year 10 and 11 entry 

In celebration of our 125th Anniversary, the College is pleased to announce that we will be offering two special 125 Years Scholarships for Year 10 or Year 11 entry in 2019. 

  • The Addsum Group Mathematics Scholarship (for year 10 or Year 11 entry in 2019)

  • The Lotus Group Humanities Scholarship (for year 10 or Year 11 entry in 2019)

The 125 Years Scholarships are awarded to one applicant per scholarship, with shortlisted candidates contacted for an interview prior to the end of Term 2, 2018. 

These two scholarships are open to external applicants only and entitle recipients to the remission of tuition fees only (in part or full) for three years, from Year 10 to 12 or Year 11 to 12. The scholarships do not cover textbooks, uniforms, excursions, technology fees, individual subject fees or boarding fees.

These scholarships are awarded to a student on the basis of academic achievement in their secondary schooling (Year 7 and above) to date, as shown in school reports and supporting documentation. These scholarships assume that the applicant is willing to contribute generally to the College community and to the broader goals of The Scots College. 

Once scholarships have been awarded, all applicants will be notified.

From the Principal

The Scots College is one of Australia’s leading independent day and boarding schools. Scots is a learning community where academic rigour, personal integrity, humour and hard work are equally encouraged. We are a school community of high expectations. At the same time, we are devoted to helping students develop intellectual, physical, spiritual, artistic, and personal interests. Our strong emphasis on leadership preparation, constructive service and personal fulfilment combine to challenge and inspire students to reach new levels of inquiry, understanding and achievement. 

We strive to equip our students so that, on leaving school, they possess the skills and values necessary to make a positive contribution to society as responsible adults, while the camaraderie and friendships that are built over the years of attendance at Scots stay with the boys for their entire lives.

The College awards each year a number of Academic and Music scholarships. Based on our Presbyterian and Christian foundation, it has and will continue to be College’s aim to help students whom, without our support, might not be able to avail themselves of the opportunities offered. 

The College also understands that financial considerations may prevent boys from sharing the experiences that we offer. In response to these considerations the College also offer a number of bursaries, primarily for those parents facing financial hardship.

This following information describes the various awards and application processes. If you have any queries about its contents, please contact the Admissions Office on 02 9391 7668. 

Thank you for your interest in The Scots College's Scholarship and Bursary Program.
