Wesley College offers academic and music scholarships for entrance to Year 7 for day and boarding students. Scholarships for Year 10 are available to students not currently attending Wesley, with preference given to rural applicants. Scholarships, to the value of up to 50% fee remission, are awarded on the basis of academic merit and a personal interview with the Headmaster. Interviews are held shortly after the scholarship examination with formal scholarship offers being made shortly thereafter. Scholarships are usually awarded for the duration of schooling at Wesley College, subject to satisfactory annual review.
Boarding students who wish to apply for a scholarship for Year 8 entry should apply for a Year 7 scholarship. Successful scholarship recipients who wish to commence as Year 8 boarders are able to defer their scholarship commencement to Year 8.
Students applying for a Music Council Scholarship are required to sit the academic scholarship examination and recipients are awarded up to 50% tuition fee remission and music tuition. Students applying for an ES Craft Scholarship are awarded part remission on music fees only.
