2023 Scholarships Are Now Open!

 

2023 will be a very special time at Wesley College as we celebrate 100 years of academic and pastoral excellence.

 

Part of Wesley’s long egalitarian tradition includes providing scholarships for talented young students, no matter their background or financial capability.

The annual scholarships are awarded for academic merit, music, and general excellence – with a number specifically for regional students. Academic ability is only one element in our selection process – along with the examination results, the student’s application and current school reports are also taken into consideration. Successful applicants must demonstrate a commitment to their academic studies and a willingness to engage in the full life of the College.

Bursaries

In line with our Uniting Church ethos, Wesley College has a proud history of providing educational opportunities for students who would not normally have the means to attend the College. We embrace a diverse community and we all benefit from this.

 

Needs-Based Bursaries (Years 7 – 11)

A number of needs-based bursaries are available to support a well-rounded and committed student who demonstrates sound academic achievement, but who otherwise would not have the opportunity to attend Wesley College.

A bursary application may be submitted independent of the scholarship process. Bursaries are awarded by the Head of Wesley College, in consultation with the Director of Finance, and they are non-public, confidential awards, treated in the strictest of confidence. Usually, these bursaries offer a 25% rebate, but they can be 50% in exceptional circumstances. Applicants and their families need to demonstrate a commitment toward, and empathy with, an independent education in a Uniting Church context.

Students who live in rural areas are given special consideration, but day admission will also be considered.

Howard Bantock Memorial Trust Bursary

This named bursary is given to a student who demonstrates an ’empathy for religious thinking and who is demonstrating qualities of Christian stewardship’. It is a needs-based award and the value varies according to need, and the availability of funds. Where applicable, the rebate is additionally applied to the boarding fee.

By Daring and By Doing Centenary Awards

In celebration of Wesley College’s centenary in 2023, a special bursary has been launched. Named after our College motto, it is available to students entering Years 8 to 11 (Day and Boarding), who are not currently attending Wesley.

Successful applicants must demonstrate an outstanding contribution and achievement across many disciplines, including academic excellence, leadership, co-curricular and community service. Wesley College prides itself on doing all the good it can, by all the means it can and strongly believes that academically-minded boys students from all backgrounds should have the opportunity to consider Wesley, irrespective of their financial means.

Students will not be required to sit an entrance examination. The bursary will be awarded by the Head of Wesley College, based on a student’s comprehensive application, portfolio and personal interview
