The Year 12 Scholarships are now open.
These school scholarships are for students who are studying in Victoria (Australia) and who are citizens or permanent residents of Australia. Only students who are currently enrolled in a registered Victorian school are eligible to apply.
Scholarships for students from Years 4 to 11 will open on 14 November 2016.
The Department of Education and Training administers more than 25 different student scholarships which equates to approximately 250 scholarship awards (as some scholarships have more than the one award).
For scholarships that the Department administers, a student must apply for a scholarship at the same year level that they were studying in 2016, eg. a student in Year 8 in 2016 would apply for a Year 8 scholarship.
Scholarships for students at relevant 2016 year levels will be granted and paid in 2017.
The scholarships are offered to primary, secondary and tertiary students and range in value from $300 to $2580. They are generally awarded to students who:
- demonstrate academic achievement
- demonstrate participation in their school and local community
- are in financial need (determined by the parents/guardians being in receipt of a Health Care Card, a Low Income Health Care Card or a Pensioner Concession Card (Centrelink reference number required) or the students themselves receiving the Youth Allowance).
However there are scholarships that are not based on the above criteria, especially scholarships connected to the Police Force and the Rail, Tram and Bus Union, Locomotive Division.
