Scholarships

Kennedy Baptist College offers a limited number of scholarships, to assist new students who aspire to a high-quality education in a caring, high-performing Christian environment. Scholarships cover either partial or full amount of a student’s tuition fees and are only available to families who are unable to provide this due to financial hardship.

Financial hardship is defined as a difficulty in coping with financial commitments due to unforeseen circumstances such as family tragedy, financial misfortune, serious illness, impacts of natural disaster and other serious or difficult circumstances.

Scholarships are awarded through an application and selection process primarily based on financial needs of the family, however the College will also consider such matters as student performance and community involvement. The number of scholarships available is limited, in line with the College’s capacity to reasonably provide such assistance. The decision to offer a scholarship is at the sole discretion of the College. Applications are called for by the College and must be submitted to the Principal.

Applications must include:

  • A cover letter outlining the applicant’s reasons for applying for the scholarship
  • Independent support/evidence validating your communicated financial position (bank statements, tax statements, payroll summary)
  • A curriculum vitae that includes, as appropriate, details of the student’s academic achievement; sporting activities and achievements; community service; participation in community, voluntary or paid work; and leadership positions held at school or in the workplace/community
  • Completion of the College Scholarship application form

To apply, please complete an application form, and submit it to the Principal along with copies of the relevant documentation.
