General information

We welcome scholarship applications from students who will make the most of the opportunities offered at Geelong College, and who can make a positive contribution to our community. Students from regional areas are encouraged to apply for scholarships in addition to boarding (i.e. academic, music, general excellence etc). Scholarships are for Australian citizens only.

All scholarship applicants for 2023 entry must sit an academic test. When registering with Edutest you will be asked if you would like to be considered for Academic, Music or Boarding scholarships, please consider these choices. Pegasus General Excellence applications are direct to the school, only shortlisted applicants will be invited to sit the academic test.

In line with increased need, all applicants will need to provide 2020/21 Tax Returns to prove financial need should your child be shortlisted for interview (for any scholarship) and the family's overall financial circumstances will be considered. In the current circumstances we are unable to consider current students of The Geelong College for a scholarship. If your child is a current student and needs financial assistance, please contact Director of Business Operations on 5226 3102 to discuss.

Practice tests

Practice tests are available from Edutest here. These tests cover Verbal Reasoning, Numerical Reasoning, Reading Comprehension and Mathematics and are suitable for students from Year 6 to Year 10 (current Year Level). The scholarship exams also include a Written Expression component which is not replicated in the practice tests.
