A number of academic scholarships are awarded to students, offering part to full remission of tuition fees for up to six years of secondary education, and are tenable for the duration of the student's time at Perth College. Selection is based on the results from an examination, followed by an interview of shortlisted candidates with the Principal.

Application Process

The School Scholarship testing programme, with online registration is conducted as part of the Academic Scholarship Co-operative Programme.

Scholarship applicants may select two schools and will sit the scholarship exam at their nominated first preference.  
For example: 1. Perth College 2. School B 

Nominating Perth College as preference 1 increases the chance of being offered a place at the School. Students will sit the examination at the school which is their nominated first preference.

  • Academic Scholarships - Years 7 to 11
    A number of Academic Scholarships are awarded to students who wish to enter Perth College in Years 7, 8, 9, 10 or 11.  These Scholarships offer 50 - 100% remission of tuition fees for the duration of the student's time at Perth College.  Students are selected on Academic Excellence based on the results from the Scholarship examination.
  • Rural Scholarships
    These are available for students who would enter Perth College as a boarder in Years 7, 8, 9, 10 or 11.  All rural students must sit the Scholarship Examination when they are in the year level prior to the entry year of the Boarding Scholarship (for example: Year 6 if applying for Year 7 entry).  The Scholarship offers part remission of tuition and boarding fees and is tenable for the duration of the student's time at Perth College.
  • Indigenous Scholarships
    Scholarships are offered to Indigenous students later in 2017 in partnership with external parties. Students of Indigenous Australian descent may apply for a boarding or day place. Although academic success achieved so far is a consideration, girls who have a positive attitude, a willingness to take on new challenges and a commitment to successfully complete Year 12 will also be taken in to account. The School aims to facilitate successful transitions to work or further study following graduation. While the School will acknowledge individual circumstances, the ongoing support of families is essential. This includes support of the educational, co-curricular and pastoral care programmes, along with making a financial contribution.

    For more information, please contact the School’s Indigenous Liaison Officer, Maria Dzubiel, on 9471 2375 or maria.dzubiel@pc.wa.edu.au or Enrolments Director, Judy Parker, on 9471 2104 or enrolments@pc.wa.edu.au
