Academic Scholarships

Academic Scholarships are offered to students commencing in Years 4, 7 and 10.  A limited number of scholarships are awarded and are for a three year fixed period.  In most cases, scholarships awarded are for 25% or 50% remission of tuition fees.  To retain an academic scholarship, students are required to maintain high academic results and meet the College's expectations in conduct and effort.

Scholarship exams for 2020 will take place on our Open Day, Saturday 16 February 2019. 

Students not currently enrolled who are being considered for award of a scholarship for 2020 will require an interview as part of the normal process for enrolment.

Sports Scholarships

Each year the school makes available to high achieving sporting students, a limited number of sporting bursaries. The number of these has varied from year to year, but has generally been between 5-10. For perspective, over the past 5 years there have been consistently over 40 students selected each year in Queensland or Australian teams, therefore the benchmark to receive a sporting bursary is very high.

In general, the criteria to be considered is:

  • National level performance in a sport that is part of our recognised program.
  • Demonstrated commitment and respect to and for the ethos of the school, generally over a period of time.
  • Be part of the Secondary School - Year 7 upwards.


  • All currently enrolled students are considered by a selection panel in November each year. Individuals sporting performances, behaviour, class work and attitude are all considered. Offers are then made to selected students for a period of one year only. Parents may, if they wish, present to the Director of Sport each October a detailed summary of a child’s achievements that can be taken to the committee for consideration.   
  • New students to the school may make application to be considered for a bursary at their enrolment interview. However, typically, any scholarship offered to a new student would initially be on a provisional basis, to be reviewed after the first semester.
  • Emmanuel athletes, who are offered inducement to move to another school, should always talk to the Director of Sport or Principal before accepting such an offer, especially if wishing to remain at Emmanuel.
