Academic Scholarships for Year 7 2020 and 2021

Applications for Academic Scholarships for students entering Year 7 in 2020 and 2021 are now open. These scholarships provide part remission of tuition fees

Luther College is pleased to offer a number of scholarships for academic excellence each year. The number and value of scholarships allocated are determined by the quality of applicants and the availability of places. These highly competitive and sought-after scholarships recognise and encourage academic potential and promote the pursuit of excellence. Applications to sit the Edutest Academic Scholarship Exam are now open.

Application Process

All applicants are required to sit the Edutest Academic Scholarship Exam, which will be held at Luther College on Saturday 23 February 2019 from 9.00am – 12 noon.

Click here or visit the Edutest website to complete your child’s registration and pay the application fee of $100 (per child).

Registration closes Friday 15 February 2019, any applications after this date will attract a late fee of $250. Once your registration is complete, Edutest will correspond directly with you to provide further information and details.

Please note: For students commencing Year 7 in 2021, the College is providing an earlier opportunity to apply for an academic scholarship, allowing scholarship offers to be made and enrolment confirmed during Term 1, 2019. A second opportunity will also be offered at the beginning of Year 6 (2020), which is traditionally when the College has held scholarship examinations. The examination paper used for Year 5 and Year 6 are different, so a student can sit the exam in Year 5, and if initially unsuccessful, sit again in Year 6.

This change gives families more time and greater support to make the right educational decision for them.
