Scholarships

Over the past three decades, Radford College has steadily grown into one of Australia’s leading schools and thousands of students have embraced the opportunities that attending Radford provides. The Scholarship program has been created to ensure an education at Radford College is accessible to a wide range of students. The Radford Foundation currently offers one Scholarship, The Foundation Senior Scholarship (Years 11 & 12). The Boorer Foundation funded a Scholarship (Years 7 – 12) for a student commencing Year 7 in 2020. Both Scholarships cover 100% of the Tuition and Capital Levy fees and compulsory College related costs.
