Scholarships for 2019

Examinations will be held at the College on Saturday, 24th March 2018.

St Brigid's College was established in 1929 by the Institute of the Sisters of Mercy, West Perth congregation. From 12 December 2011, as a result of the reconfiguration of the Sisters of Mercy to the newly formed Institute of the Sisters of Mercy of Australia and Papua New Guinea (ISMAPNG), the College came under the governance of Mercy Education Limited. We strive to provide a Christ-centred environment that encourages growth of the total person and the College is structured in such a way so as to best cater for the individual needs of all students from Junior through Middle to Senior School. Comprehensive academic and extra-curricular programmes are offered.

St Brigidís College awards Scholarships for entry to Years 7 and 10 with the intention of assisting students to maximise their potential. The scholarships cover part tuition fees and are open to all students who are due to start Year 7 or Year 10 in 2019.

St Brigidís College also supports families who might not otherwise be able to afford a Catholic education for their child by providing scholarship monies to partially affray fees. In these instances, means testing will apply.

The College participates in the ACER (Australian Council for Educational Research) Scholarship Selection Test (SST). Scholarships are awarded on academic merit and an interview with the Scholarship Committee. Candidates must sit for the ACER exam. For entry into Year 7, 2019 and Year 10, 2019, the ACER exam will be held on Saturday 24 March 2018.
