Scotch College Adelaide values student excellence and diversity and seeks to recognise this through the provision of a number of scholarships each year.  

Scholarships are awarded to encourage and recognise meritorious achievement and potential. Scholarships are offered at different year levels based on the assessment of specific criteria. Candidates are welcome to submit applications for more than one scholarship. However, if successful with more than one application, only the highest percentage awarded for an individual scholarship will be applied to the fee.

In most cases, scholarships at Scotch are from 25% remission of tuition fees for the duration of enrolment (except for the Personal Endeavour Scholarship which is 3 years duration). To view the full College fee schedule, please visit the fees page of this website. Scholarships do not include the one-off admission fee, payable on confirmation of enrolment.

  • Scholarship applications for the Colin Hamilton Scholarship (Year 7 or 8 2023 Entry) close on 30 June 2022.
  • Scholarship applications for the Oughton Family Scholarship (Year 10 2023 Entry) close on 30 June 2022.
  • All other scholarship applications are now closed.


The Scholarship Process

Applicants may apply for up to two of the available scholarships listed below. Applications are made online by clicking the "Apply Now" button on this page. To complete the application form, applicants must include their two most recent school reports and complete a covering letter of application (written by the student). After receipt of applications, applicants will be shortlisted. Only shortlisted applicants will be invited for an interview, trial or audition (in the case of Sport, Performing Arts, Music and Caledonian). Successful applicants will subsequently be offered a place in the College. In lieu of a formal interview, Personal Endeavour applicants will be invited to attend a ‘Come & Try’ day at Scotch College Junior school wherein they will meet with the Head of Mitcham Campus, as well as participating in a classroom experience. 

Successful applicants will be required to pay a $150 application fee upon confirmation of place. Applicants who are not shortlisted for interview will not be charged any fee.
