Senior School Scholarships

Iona Presentation College is proud to offer Academic, Music and Indigenous scholarships. To benefit from one of these scholarships, girls from Catholic, independent and government schools, and whose values align with those of Iona, are invited to apply. Year 6 students attending the Buckland campus are eligible to apply for scholarships to the Palmerston Campus.

A willingness to fully participate in the life of the College is an essential pre-requisite.

Academic Scholarships offer either a 25% or 50% reduction in College tuition fees. To apply for a 2019 Academic Scholarship, please click here. Please note scholarship applications close at 2.00pm on Saturday 24 February.

Scholarship examinations are held at the College in March each year, for entry the following year, and are facilitated by external examiners.

Any student entering Year 7 or Year 10 (including current students) in the following year is eligible to apply.

All girls applying for an Academic Scholarship must sit the examination.

Girls who perform well in their testing will be invited to an interview in early May, with our Principal to assist in the final selection.

Scholarships are awarded based on the interview and results of the Academic Assessment Services Examination. At the interview, the Principal will take into account the student's involvement in her own school and local community.

Candidates will be notified of the outcome in writing by early June, and the award of the scholarship will be announced to the Iona community following acceptance and appropriate consent from the recipient(s).
