Scholarships for entry into 2022

 

 

Scholarships for 2022 entry will be highly competitive because they will be fewer in number across all categories than in recent years. We appreciate there will be many worthy scholarship applicants who need assistance, now more than ever, to be able to consider a Geelong College education. We encourage you to apply, and we look forward to considering each application.

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. Students from regional areas are encouraged to apply for scholarships in addition to boarding (i.e. academic, music, general excellence etc). Scholarships are for Australian citizens only.

All scholarship applicants for 2022 entry must sit an academic test which will be held on Saturday 13 February 2021. When registering with Edutest you will be asked if you would like to be considered for Academic, Music or Boarding scholarships, please consider these choices. Pegasus General Excellence applications are direct to the school, only shortlisted applicants will be invited to sit the academic test.

In line with increased need, all applicants will need to provide 2019/20 Tax Returns to prove financial need should your child be shortlisted for interview (for any scholarship) and the family's overall financial circumstances will be considered. In the current circumstances we are unable to consider current students of The Geelong College for a scholarship. If your child is a current student and needs financial assistance, please contact Director of Business Operations on 5226 3102 to discuss.
