2019 Scholarships - Closed

A number of scholarships are awarded to current and new students entering Years 7, 8, 9, 10 or 11, offering part to full remission of tuition and/or boarding 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 and school reports, followed by an interview of shortlisted candidates with the Principal.

There are a range of scholarships on offer, including Academic, Rural, Music or an Old Girls’ Association Memorial Bursary, from November to March in the preceding year of entry.  General Excellence scholarships are also available for those girls who otherwise would not be able to attend Perth College and for current students who otherwise would not be able to remain at the School. Please see below for specific details regarding eligibility of each scholarship.

Perth College also offers mid-year scholarships for girls new to the School entering in Years 9, 10 or 11 which are advertised from June-August. The Perth College Foundation offers two specific scholarships with Academic and General Excellence awards also available. Applications must be made online.

Application Process

The School Scholarship testing programme, with online registration, is conducted as part of the Academic Scholarship Co-operative Programme involving several other independent girls’ schools.
Scholarship applicants may select up to two schools, for example:
1. Perth College 2. School B.

Nominating Perth College as your first preference greatly increases the chance of being offered a place at the School and students will sit the examination at their nominated first preference.

  • Academic Scholarships - Years 7 to 11
    A number of Academic Scholarships are awarded to current or new students entering in Years 7, 8, 9, 10 or 11.  These scholarships offer part to full 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 and a review of school reports.
  • General Excellence Scholarships

    This bursary is offered to current or new students entering Years 7, 8,9,10 or 11 who may otherwise not be able to afford to attend Perth College or remain at the School.

    It will offer part-remission of fees (tuition/boarding) for the duration of a student's schooling; girls will be tested and selected in the year preceding the year of entry.

    This general excellence bursary is based on the assessment of each application with a bias towards the range and level of an applicant's achievements.

    To be eligible, applicants must be a citizen or permanent resident of Australia residing in Western Australia and must demonstrate a postitive attitude and good level of achievement in academic and co-curricular areas.

    Scholarships are awarded taking into account results in the Scholarship examination, the range and level of previous achievements and an interview with the Principal.

    Only shortlisted candidates will be invited to interview.

  • 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 2018 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 taken into account, girls who have a positive attitude, a willingness to take on new challenges and a commitment to successfully complete Year 12 will also be considered. The School aims to facilitate successful transitions to work or further study following graduation. While Perth College acknowledges 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
  • Music Scholarships – Year 7
    Music Scholarships are awarded to current or new students entering Year 7 who have outstanding musical ability and are advanced instrumentalists on their musical instrument of choice.  Academic ability is also considered.  Applicants for this scholarship are required to sit the academic examination and attend an audition. Music Scholarships provide part remission of school tuition fees and free instrumental tuition on one instrument.  The percentage of fee remission is at the discretion of the Principal. 
  • Old Girls’ Association – Sisters’ Memorial Bursary – Year 7
    Daughters and grand-daughters of members of the Old Girls’ Association who are entering Year 7 are eligible for this bursary.  The value of the bursary is 25 per cent remission of the tuition fee each year.
