Scholarships at A.B. Paterson College are awarded following the publication of the results of the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) scholarship examination held in February each year. A small number of full and part scholarships, based on academic or musical ability, are available. Scholarships subsequently awarded commence in the following year. These scholarships cover tuition fees only, and do not include subject levies and other disbursements or costs.
From 2014, A.B. Paterson College will initiate a change to its scholarship programme, offering testing in Year 6 and Year 9 only, for 2015 scholarships in Years 7-9 and Years 10-12.
This will align the College’s scholarship programme with the introduction of Year 7 as the first year of secondary education in Queensland in 2015, and also offer a number of scholarships to students entering their senior years of schooling.
Students who wish to apply for scholarship in Years 10-12, or who are already A.B. Paterson College scholarship holders for Years 7-9, will then be eligible, as Year 9 students, to apply/reapply for scholarship in Years 10-12.
All students, regardless of their current school, are welcome to apply and sit for the scholarship test. Applicants who are unsuccessful are informed of this by letter.
Students who apply for a Music Scholarship are also expected to sit for the examination, as the College requires that Music Scholarship holders should also be competent academic students.
To apply for a Music Scholarship, please register online for the appropriate ACER scholarship examination as indicated above, and return the completed Music Application form available below to Karen Milburn, Assistant Head of Admissions and Communications at the College, at firstname.lastname@example.org Sometime after the examination, auditions will be held for prospective Music Scholarship awardees.
Students, who have applied for enrolment at A.B. Paterson College in year levels eligible for scholarship consideration, are informed of the forthcoming examination. The examination is also advertised in the Gold Coast Bulletin in mid-late January.
