Scholarships

​Concordia Lutheran College seeks to recognise, support and promote talented young people in the belief that the educational experiences and achievements of all students can be enhanced though a quality educational program. A scholarship creates an opportunity for exceptional students to begin or continue their education at a College which nurtures the potential of every student.

General Excellence Scholarships are awarded to students entering Years 7 to 11 who are able to demonstrate outstanding abilities in a number of areas such as Academic Achievement, Leadership & Community Service, Sporting Excellence and Excellence in Music and The Arts.

Scholarships provide part remission of tuition fees, as well as boarding fees in some instances, for successful candidates. Normal enrolment fees apply. Scholarships do not cover additional costs such as levies, camps, excursions, uniforms, textbooks and other equipment.

Scholarships are awarded for up to a three year period, that is, for the duration of either Middle or Senior College.
