When should I apply for a scholarship?
Scholarship applications are now open and can be submitted until 11:59 pm on the closing date.
When will I know the outcome of my scholarship application?
The Scholarship Committee meets on the first Wednesday in February.
We aim to notify all applicants of the outcome of their application following this meeting.
What is the value of our scholarships?
This varies by year and by award. In 2023, we distributed more than $100,000 in scholarships and bursaries, ranging from $500 to $12,000.
We were able to support 49 students thanks to the generosity of our benefactors.
I am ready to submit my scholarship application now, but I won’t receive my ATAR until January. When should I submit my application?
You must submit proof of your ATAR, GPA, or equivalent to be considered for a scholarship.
If you are currently completing year 12, this means you may not know your ATAR until December or January.
You can complete and save your scholarship application prior to the date the ATAR is released and complete the document once you know what this is.
You cannot submit an incomplete scholarship application form, and you must include this information so that we can fairly assess your scholarship application.
What documentation do I need to submit as proof of my ATAR?
Your Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) is supplied by your state tertiary admissions board (e.g., SATAC, VTAC, UAC, TASC, TISC, QTAC), typically via a letter when you apply for university or via their online portal.
If you do not have this documentation, please contact SATAC in the first instance, and if you have further issues, please email email@example.com, and someone will be in touch to discuss your situation.
I am an international student and do not have an ATAR. What information do you need from me?
If you do not have an ATAR, please submit an English-language copy of your secondary school diploma, including a transcript of your results, and transcripts from any university-level study you have already undertaken.
What happens to my scholarship if I defer my place at St Ann’s College?
Unfortunately, St Ann’s College scholarships cannot be deferred.
If you decide to defer your place at St Ann’s, you will need to re-apply for a scholarship in the relevant scholarship round when you commence at College.
How will I receive my scholarship?
Unless otherwise specified, scholarships are awarded as a discount on your College fees.
For example, if you receive a scholarship of $2,000, this will be applied as a $1,000 deduction to fees in both the first and second semester.
If, for any reason, you withdraw from College, your scholarship cannot be paid out as cash.
I am a postgraduate student. Can I apply for a scholarship?
Postgraduate students are encouraged to apply for both residence at St Ann’s and for scholarships.
Postgraduate students are required to provide their university transcripts for all studies as well as their most recent GPA.
I want to apply for a scholarship, but I have missed the deadline. Is it too late?
Unfortunately, if you miss the deadline for the scholarship, you will be ineligible for consideration in that round.
I am applying for mid-year entry. Can I apply for a scholarship?
Mid-year entry applicants are welcome to apply for scholarships during the main scholarship round.
How do I contact the provider of my scholarship to say thank you?
Scholarship recipients are expected to write a letter of thanks to the provider of their scholarship, articulating the impact their support has had.
The St Ann’s scholarship program is funded through the philanthropy and spirit of giving of our community, and our donors value hearing from the students they support.
After you arrive at College, you will be provided with information about how to prepare and deliver this letter.
How do I apply for the Playford Trust Scholarships?
The Playford Trust Scholarship is an external award.
While jointly funded by the College and Chartwells, the applications are made directly to and assessed by the Trust.

Can I apply for a scholarship from St Ann’s if I am already receiving a scholarship or funding from somewhere else?
We strongly encourage you to apply for all scholarships for which you are eligible, including those offered by your University and other providers.
If you are applying for a scholarship from St Ann’s based on financial need, we ask that you detail any other financial support that you are receiving, to ensure that we can make a fair assessment of your situation.
