Wesley’s Learning in Residence (Boarding) Scholarship offers students the opportunity to live and learn within the contemporary boarding facilities at the Glen Waverley Campus.

Applicants will be able to demonstrate their leadership and community service achievements and outline how the College and boarding community will benefit by offering them a scholarship. Applicants shortlisted for an interview will be required to supply evidence of their accomplishments and reasons for wanting to attend Wesley College.

The Learning in Residence Scholarship typically awards a 50% reduction in tuition and boarding fees.

We encourage families to attend a campus tour or open day prior to the scholarship closing date if possible.

Scholarship applications for 2023 entry are now open. Applications will close on 14 October 2022.
