Indigenous Scholarships

Indigenous Scholarships are awarded to boys of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage at various levels of entry to the Senior School. They provide exceptional educational opportunities for Indigenous boys who have the potential to lead within their community. Scholarships are available for boarding and day students and are tenable for the duration of a boy’s education at Christ Church.

How to apply

The application should be completed by the student and his parents or guardian. Applications should include the following:

  • Indigenous Scholarship Application form
  • Application for Admission (no fee payable)
  • A copy of the student’s birth certificate
  • Copies of the student’s last two school reports
  • A copy of the student’s most recent NAPLAN assessment
  • A recent passport size photograph of the student
  • A character reference by a person (not related) who has known the student over time.

We encourage families to apply for Abstudy support or Madalah Scholarships which are made possible through the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.

MADALAH Limited is a not-for-profit organisation that offers secondary and tertiary education scholarships for Indigenous students, primarily from remote and regional communities, to WA’s leading boarding schools and Australian universities. MADALAH secondary scholarships provide support to students from Years 7 to 12. These scholarships are administered by MADALAH on behalf of the National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA). We are a partner school with MADALAH and therefore enrolled students may be eligible. For more information please visit the MADALAH website.
