Academic Scholarships
Academic Scholarships are available to students entering Year 7 or Year 11 in 2018. All applicants are required to sit the ACER Academic Scholarship Exam held in February each year. Shortlisted applicants will then be invited to attend an interview with the Principal.

Applications for this year's ACER Academic Scholarship Exam have now closed.

School Captain Scholarships
Clayfield College offers a Scholarship Program to students who are current Year 6 School Captains and Vice Captains for Year 7 entry. These scholarships are available to students who have demonstrated their commitment to excellence through Leadership, and are dedicated to achieving their goals beyond schooling.

Students must demonstrate a commitment to College life by being diligent in their academic studies and their willingness to actively participate in the College Co-curricular Program.

To apply for a School Captain Scholarship, students must submit a cover letter, personal resumé (including supporting evidence), together with two most recent school reports and Year 5 NAPLAN results, which will be followed by an interview with the Dean of Pastoral Care.

Each scholarship will provide a 25% reduction in tuition fees only, and is applicable for the student's schooling for Years 7 to 12. Scholarships are reviewed annually based on a set criteria.

The first round of applications has closed for this year. If you are interested in applying for the second round, please send your application by Friday, 15 September 2017.

STEM Scholarships
Clayfield College has available a limited number of STEM Scholarships to financially support students entering in Years 9, 10 and 11 who will be new to the College. In offering such scholarships, the College seeks to support students who can demonstrate a commitment to further enhancing the academic reputation of Clayfield College and a desire to achieve their goals beyond schooling.

STEM Scholarships are available to students who can demonstrate excellence in their academic studies and have, as their goal, to achieve an OP 1 or 2 at the end of Year 12. As these scholarships will be very competitive, it is expected that students will be strong A-grade students across two of the following three subjects - Science, Technology, Maths, and, therefore, in the top 5% of their cohort. External testing will be completed to confirm current school achievement levels.

Each scholarship will provide a one-half reduction in tuition fees. All scholarships at Clayfield College are subject to an annual progress review. All other levies and charges will remain as normal.

The final decision with respect to successful scholarship awardees will rest with the Principal.

Second round applications close on Friday, 15 September 2017.

For further information regarding STEM Scholarships, or to apply, please contact the Enrolments Office on 07 3262 0220 or enrol@clayfield.qld.edu.au.

Excellence Scholarships are available to students entering Years 7 to 10 and Years 11 and 12 who can demonstrate potential excellence in Academics and either Sport or Cultural (Music, Visual Art, Drama, Dance, Debating or Public Speaking). Academic Excellence is an essential criteria and applicants would be expected to be in the top 10% of their cohort (typically all A grades). Applications are to include an application form, covering letter, supporting resumé and copies of two most recent school reports and latest NAPLAN results. Suitable applicants will be invited to attend an interview with the Dean of Teaching and Learning.

Excellence Scholarships are scaled up to a maximum of 50% of tuition fees and are subject to a progress review each semester.

Clayfield College Scholarship Policy
The Clayfield College Scholarship Program recognises and acknowledges students who take responsibility for, and are proactive in, the development of their own education. The program also encourages students to attend Clayfield College who would not otherwise be able to do so.

In order to maintain a scholarship at Clayfield College, students are expected to maintain high standards in their conduct, participation in College life and their academic progress throughout the scholarship period.

In accepting a scholarship, parents/guardians agree that they understand their child will complete their education at Clayfield College.

The College reserves the right to request the full repayment of the total value of the scholarship if students/parents do not fulfil this expectation without valid cause.
