Scholarships for 2019 NOW OPEN

Prince Alfred College has a long and proud tradition of offering scholarships to families with sons who have demonstrated they have the potential to derive benefit from the College’s academic and co-curriculum programs. At PAC we offer a range of scholarships designed to help fund the costs of an independent education. Our School’s philosophy of valuing and nurturing the whole person is very much a part of our scholarship program which does not aim to have a narrowly academic focus.

The College celebrates academic excellence and student potential and we are committed to support students who are disadvantaged. Accordingly we offer a wide range of scholarships to help ensure that money and circumstance is no barrier to the most promising students having access to the high quality education and facilities that we offer. Scholarship recipients are expected to be good role models.

Scholarships may cover part remission of tuition or boarding fees for a student. They are awarded to students who can demonstrate their ability to make a significant contribution to the school; these include but are not limited to outstanding academic ability, ability in creative and performing arts, debating, leadership, sport and chess.

The key criteria for awarding scholarships at Prince Alfred College are as follows:

                  • Overall academic performance and future  potential
                  • Achievement and involvement in other areas of excellence such as performing arts, visual arts, sport, music, debating and other relevant areas
                  • Citizenship, including community service
                  • Leadership abilities
