Scholarships 2019

How to apply for Year 9 Scholarships for 2019

We know parents work hard to send their boys to College and this is something we never take for granted. Approximately 20% of students at Christ's College benefit from some sort of scholarship representing aspects of excellence and/or financial need. We believe our Scholarship Programme helps to ensure we have a diverse community that reflects life beyond the school gates.

From our foundation in 1850, all our scholarships have been made possible by the generous gifting of Old Boys, parents and friends of College. Our two most prestigious academic scholarships – the Somes Exhibition Scholarships – are named after one of our most inspirational early benefactors, Maria Somes.

Applicants for Academic, General Excellence and Executive Principal scholarships are required to sit the scholarship examinations on Thursday 24 May.

Students sitting the scholarship examinations need to be aware we do not give out past papers or results, as this information is used only for awarding scholarships. Both the papers and results are destroyed after scholarships have been awarded.

Scholarship applications must be delivered by email to Admissions Registrar Sarah Fechney at r........@christscollege.comApplications close Friday 4 May 2018.

They must be willing to participate in all aspects of College life and make a significant contribution to the school culture.
