Scholarships

“Starting strong is good. Finishing strong is epic.” – Robyn Sharma.

To acknowledge and encourage excellence, St Columba Anglican School offers a limited number of scholarships to students entering Year 7 and Year 11. Indigenous Scholarships are also available for students entering Kindergarten to Year 12.

These scholarships will offer students the opportunity to join the School and be a part of the academic, cultural, sporting and leadership programs that have made the School the choice of students who aim for post-school academic and leadership success.

The St Thomas' Anglican Church Bicentennial Christian Leadership Scholarship

The scholarship aims to assist and encourage meritorious students who have demonstrated excellence in Christian leadership and community service, cultivating them to be the next generation of leaders in our society. It seeks to recognise students who demonstrate their commitment to God through strong faith, integrity, and a commitment to a local church community.

We firmly believe in fostering a community where faith, leadership, and service go hand in hand. Through this scholarship, we aim to nurture individuals who will not only excel academically, but also make a profound difference in their communities and beyond.

The scholarship, offered by St Thomas’ Anglican Church of Port Macquarie, covers the cost of tuition fees for Years 10, 11, and 12.

St Columba offers scholarships to students who demonstrate excellence, combined with a high degree of personal commitment and involvement in a range of School activities. Students benefit from scholarships as their particular interest, skills, efforts and abilities are recognised. Other students gain from the contribution made by these students and their positive example. Our School benefits by using its scholarship system to support excellence in its various forms.

Access Scholarships for Year 7 and Year 11

These Scholarships will be awarded to applicants who will thrive academically and personally at St Columba, and who will, in turn, make a significant contribution to the life of the School. While financial need will be strongly considered, awards may be based on a combination of factors, including financial need; the academic, professional, or other accomplishments of the candidate; obstacles overcome by the candidate; contributions to the local community; the candidate’s interest in pursuing a SCAS education.

Arts Scholarships for Year 11

Arts Scholarships are awarded in Dance, Music and Drama to students of high-level artistic ability on the basis of an audition, interview and giving consideration to academic merit. Selected students will be invited to undertake an audition.
