Scholarships & Bursaries
Clayfield College’s Scholarship Program celebrates and fosters excellence. It also recognises students who take responsibility for, and are proactive in, the development of their own education. Importantly, the program provides opportunities for students to attend Clayfield College who may not otherwise be able to do so.
In 2020, the College is pleased to offer Excellence Scholarships (Academic, STEM, Sport and Leadership), as well as an Isolated Children’s Parents’ Association (ICPA) Bursary for 2020 entry.
A limited number of scholarships will be awarded and are reviewed at each Semester reporting period. Excellence in Academics, Sport and STEM Scholarships provide partial remission of tuition fees at the discretion of the Principal, with Excellence in Leadership Scholarships covering 25% of tuition fees for Years 7 to 12. The value of the ICPA Bursary is also at the discretion of the Principal.
