Create Your Own Scholarship

Sheldon College offers a ‘Create Your Own’ scholarship. We are a College who values individuality and are looking for creative, talented and uniquely gifted students, who may otherwise go unrecognised.


Are you passionate about social justice?
Do you have a remarkable talent for entrepreneurship?
Are your app design skills next level?
Are you our next Winter Olympian?

We are seeking exceptional talent in a demonstrated skill. We are purposeful in wanting to discover the depth and breadth of an individual’s capabilities and seek students who can dynamically contribute to the life of the College.

As well as progressing their area of interest, scholarship recipients are expected to make solid academic progress and display conduct of a high standard.

If you are entering Years 9 to 11 in 2024 and feel this could be you, we encourage you to apply.
