Scholarships

Over the past three decades, Radford College has steadily grown into one of Australia’s leading schools, with thousands of students embracing the opportunities 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. 

2022 Foundation Senior Scholarship Applications now open

The Radford College Development Foundation’s principal purpose is to support education at Radford College. In fulfilling this aim, the Foundation is offering a full two-year scholarship for one student commencing Year 11 in 2022. The scholarship will be offered to a student who demonstrates outstanding achievement and community involvement, but whose financial circumstances prevent them from attending the College. The selection criteria include a review of recent school reports and NAPLAN results, an evaluation of the applicant’s reasons for applying for the scholarship and a determination of whether the student meets the financial hardship test. The recipient will remain anonymous and the successful applicant will be someone who will contribute significantly to the life of the College - both in and outside the classroom.

The scholarship will cover 100% of the Tuition and Capital Levy fees for two years (Years 11 and 12), and up to 100% of other College-related fees.
