Our Scholarships

At The Geelong College 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 etc). Scholarships are for Australian citizens only.

All scholarship applicants must sit an academic test which will be held at the College on a Saturday in November, the date will be advised in August 2020 for applications for entry into 2022.

Current Geelong College students applying for music, visual or performing arts scholarships do not have to sit the academic test and apply directly to the College.

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.
