Selection Criteria

Academic Scholarships are awarded on the basis of a written examination. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to an interview with the Principal. Copies of school reports will be requested. Please note that this interview does not guarantee that a scholarship will be offered.

As well as demonstrating academic excellence, applicants should demonstrate an interest in participating in the wide range of opportunities available at the College and respect the Mission, Vision and Values that govern the College.


The written examination is conducted by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) and covers mathematics, written expression and reading comprehension. While Hebrew and Jewish Studies are compulsory at Bialik College, these subjects are not tested in the academic examination.
