Scholarships

Mount Annan Christian College is pleased to offer Academic Scholarships in Years 7, 9 and 11. These are awarded on merit, based on the results of the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) Scholarship Selection Testing Program.

 

ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIP

Students in Years 6, 8 and 10 are eligible to sit for a scholarship, with a view to an awarded scholarship taking effect from the beginning of Year 7, 9 or 11 in the following Year. A successful scholarship recipient will be awarded an academic scholarship to the value of 100% level discount on the tuition and Student Expenses component of the College fees.

Awarded scholarships will apply for the remainder of the student’s education as long as appropriate academic and behavioural standards are maintained. If a student withdraws from Mount Annan Christian College before the completion of their Scholarships then the full Scholarship may be required to be paid back.

Applications to sit the Scholarship Selection Test can only be made online via our website. When submitting a registration online a fee of $120.00 must accompany each application. If you are registering for more than one school a registration fee applies to each school.

All Candidates are required to provide the following additional information to Mount Annan Christian College:

  • Supporting Statement Candidates are asked to write a short passage in support of their application for a Scholarship. Why should I be granted this Scholarship? Please include details of any special circumstances that might not be apparent from other information being supplied.
