Scholarships

Methodist Ladies' College Council is proud to offer academic, boarding and music scholarships to girls entering Years 7, 8 or 10.

We invite girls from all independent and State schools to apply for the wonderful opportunity of gaining a MLC education.

We encourage girls whose philosophies and values align with ours, and who are willing to fully participate in College life to apply.

Testing and auditions for the scholarships are held at our Claremont campus in March for entry the following year. Special arrangements can be made for girls living more than 400 kilometres from our campus.

All of the girls wishing to apply for a music or boarding scholarship must sit the academic examination.

Girls who perform well in their testing will be invited to an interview with our Principal.

Applications for 2017 Scholarships open by January 2016.

About MLC Scholarships

Academic Scholarships

Each year the MLC College Council offers a number of academic scholarships to girls entering Years 7, 8 or 10. Each academic scholarship covers 50 per cent of tuition fees until graduation. This varies for music and boarding scholarships.

All girls wishing to be considered for a Council academic, boarding or music scholarship must sit the academic scholarship test.

An academic prize is also offered each year to a student who is a descendant of a MLC Claremont Collegian (past student).

Scholarships with varying concessions are awarded for academic and musical excellence. From time to time the Principal may award a scholarship at her discretion.
