Scholarships

Scholarships provide from one-quarter to full remission of tuition fees for successful candidates. Scholarships are awarded for the entire period a student attends Clarendon providing that the holder continues to satisfy the Principal in all points of conduct and work.

Scholarships cover academic domestic tuition fees only, unless stated otherwise. Normal enrolment fees apply. Scholarships do not cover additional costs such as boarding fees, uniforms, textbooks and equipment, camps and excursions or any other non-compulsory co-curricular activities, such as Performing Arts lessons.

The Principal is the only person who can award a scholarship.

The program offers the following scholarships:

  • Academic
  • Performing Arts
  • Visual Arts
  • Excellence
  • Regional and Rural
  • Geoff Brooks Memorial
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander

Applications are now open for the following scholarships for 2025. These are awarded to students who display talent in a variety of areas including, but not restricted to, leadership, commitment to community service, physical ability, performing arts, visual arts and a degree of academic ability but, more importantly, sustained commitment to their studies. The application process will include an interview for shortlisted candidates and referees will be required.
