Academic Scholarships

Academic Scholarships

Bialik College is offering Academic Scholarships to external (currently non-Bialik) students entering Years 5, 7 and 10 and internal (current Bialik) students entering Years 7 and 10 in 2022.

Selection Criteria

Academic Scholarships are awarded on the basis of a written examination, school reports, and an interview with the Principal. Many factors are taken into consideration before an academic scholarship is granted and a Principal’s interview does not necessarily mean 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 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.
