Downlands scholarships traditionally fall into three categories: Academic, Performing Arts and All Rounder.

The concept of awarding scholarships will have differing criteria at various schools, but at Downlands we seek to offer the gift of a Downlands education to those students who aspire to be part of our community and who are keen to give something significant back to the College through demonstrated excellence, thereby enhancing established programs and events at the College.

Downlands College offers part scholarships in all three categories for students entering Year 7 or Year 10 in 2018.

Applications for 2018 Academic, All Rounder and Performing Arts scholarships for Years 7 and 10 close on Friday 10 February 2017.

Students may wish to apply for more than one scholarship category but should note that a Scholarship Application fee ($100) applies to each application for each category.

Irrespective of what school your child attends, it is necessary that you attach full documentation supporting your child’s application. All applicants should submit a résumé of achievements with the application form. This must cover academic achievement, sporting prowess and leadership/community experiences. Applications should also include your child's most recent semester reports, NAPLAN results, certificates or awards and letters of support from your child's coaches/teachers.
