Scholarships are vitally important
To reward excellence
To spur residents to even greater achievement
To assist students to attend the College who might otherwise be unable to do so.
The College offers a range of merit-based and means-based scholarships. A substantial proportion of the awards is provided by individuals and organisations that are associated with the College. Some are based on academic achievement; others include provisions relating to financial need. A full list of these scholarships can be viewed below.
In addition the College awards scholarships and exhibitions to incoming and continuing students on the basis of their Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) or UWA Weighted Average Marks (WAM). Scholarships of $750 and $1,000, respectively, will be awarded to incoming students with an ATAR of 98 and 99, and to continuing students with a WAM above 85. Exhibitions of $500 and $750, respectively, will be awarded to incoming students with an ATAR of 97, and to continuing students with a WAM of above 80.
The College is endeavouring to increase the available number of scholarships, particularly means-based awards.
