How to apply for a scholarship

All new students who apply for entry to Janet Clarke Hall are considered automatically for a scholarship upon admission to the College - you do not need to apply for a scholarship in order to be considered. A selection committee including Council and University membership will consider all applicants with an eye to the following:

Academic achievement

This includes your Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) or equivalent (OP/ Bursary/ A levels/IB etc.) for students entering from secondary school. For students already studying at the University, we will calculate a grade point average from previous tertiary study.

Other points of distinction

Including community service, scholarship or other notable achievements such as awards, prizes, etc. Supporting material evidencing these achievements must be included with your application in order to be considered by the selection committee.

Please note that it is your responsibility to furnish all relevant information (photocopied documents are acceptable) in order to be considered for a scholarship.

How to apply for a financial support (a college bursary)

Bursaries help students who may need extra financial assistance to live in residence at JCH. All applications for bursaries are kept strictly confidential to the College, and JCH bursaries are provided confidentially so that only the student, their parent, and the College is aware that a bursary has been awarded.

Applicants for financial assistance should write directly to the Principal, enclosing supporting financial information on all sources of income and with a statement of assets, and return this information to the College with their application.
