At The Geelong College we welcome scholarship applications from students who will make the most of the opportunities offered at Geelong College, and who can make a positive contribution to our community.
Each year we offer Academic, Boarding and Music Scholarships from Years 7 to 11, and encourage diversity and excellence at the College through this program. Means tested scholarships and scholarships for Old Collegians are also available, and from time to time we offer other scholarships. When you register for the scholarship exam you will be given a range of options to select so that we can consider you for the appropriate scholarships.
The fee remission offered to each candidate is at the discretion of the Principal and will take into consideration the scholarship exam results as well as current school performance and the candidate's community, sporting and personal achievements. Students from regional areas are encouraged to apply for scholarships in addition to boarding (ie academic, music etc).
All external candidates must sit an examination facilitated by Edutest at the College. A College presentation, morning tea and tours for parents will be available during the test.
Supporting documentation (most recent school report and NAPLAN results) will be required should a candidate be offered an interview. Applicants will be advised of the requirements when arranging the interview.
Some scholarships are for students who would otherwise not be able to attend the College for financial reasons and are therefore means tested If you indicate on the application form that you would like to be considered for a means tested scholarship you will be asked to provide financial details with your supporting documentation. Applicants will be advised of the requirements when arranging the interview.
