Financial assistance and scholarships

As a Catholic School in the Edmund Rice tradition, the Waverley College scholarship program fulfils two key goals: to provide equality of access to those who otherwise would not seek enrolment, and to encourage our students to realise their potential and strive for excellence.

The Brother JP Lacey Scholarship

The Br JP Lacey Scholarship is funded by the Waverley College Old Boys’ Union and is annually awarded to a Catholic student or students who demonstrate sound academic performance AND whose families are able to provide evidence of financial hardship. Award of the scholarship is determined by the Headmaster.

The scholarships are offered to Catholic students currently in Year 6 for entry into Year 7, and to students in Year 10 for entry into Year 11.

Applications for other years may be considered at the discretion of the Headmaster.

To apply, download the Br JP Lacey Scholarship information sheet and application form.

The Senior Academic Scholarship

In pursuit of academic excellence, Waverley College will offer a limited number of academic scholarships each year. The Senior Academic Scholarship is awarded annually to a student or students who demonstrate academic excellence through success in the ACER Scholarship Test. The scholarship provides full or partial remission of tuition fees.

Scholarships are offered to students in Year 6 applying for entry into Year 7, and to students in Year 10 for entry into Year 11.

To apply, download the information sheet and either the Year 7 application form or the Year 10/11 application form as appropriate, and ensure you register for the ACER Scholarship Selection Test.
