Foundation and Music Scholarships for current Tranby Students are now open (applications close on 16th August 2019)

I am pleased to provide details of how current students can apply for a Foundation Scholarship or a Music Scholarship. As was the case last year, these scholarships will be for existing students only, with prospective students undertaking an entirely separate process. For me this is important, as it underlines our commitment to current students who are excelling in their studies at Tranby.

The Foundation Scholarships are framed around College values, which see students do their best across a range of College activities. Returning to the three year scholarship model, these scholarships are for current Year 3, 6 and 9 students. Our Music Scholarships are pitched at the same year levels, with the opportunity for any student who is new to Tranby in 2019 able to apply.

Being personally involved in this process, I know just how much talent we have in our student population at Tranby. Sure, not everyone who applies will be successful in achieving a scholarship, but it remains a very good experience for students to put themselves through. We never want to set children up to fail, but we also want to encourage, challenge and coach them to cope with success and also disappointment. The Tranby I know sees students celebrate the achievements of their peers. It's as much about healthy, personal learning and growth, as winning an award such as a scholarship.

Tranby College offers a range of entry scholarship opportunities, aimed at supporting new students to attend the College.

Academic Scholarships

All new students that are not currently attending Tranby College are welcome to apply for a general Academic Scholarship.  Applicants are assessed in a one hour, age-appropriate test similar to a NAPLAN.

Any new student whose most recent school report shows academic achievement at a B grade average (or better) across the core subjects of Maths, English, Science and Humanities is eligible to be considered for a one-year Achievement Scholarship.

Any new student who has represented Western Australia in any sport or recognised competition is also eligible to be considered for a one-year Achievement Scholarship.

The Spirit of Tranby Award (Community Service Scholarships)

Students who can demonstrate their active involvement in local voluntary community service activities are eligible to be considered for The Spirit of Tranby Award.

STEM (Science, Technology Engineering and Maths) Scholarships

Any new student entering Years 5 and 6 is encouraged and invited to apply for a STEM Scholarship.  Commencing in 2019, the College is delivering dedicated Year 5 and 6 STEM projects, using Tranby's specialist Science and Technology laboratories, teachers and resources. Foundation scholarships are being offered for students with a passion to become involved in real-life, practical STEM projects as part of their everyday learning.

How to apply
In all cases, scholarship applications are free.  Scholarships provide remission from College tuition fees.  Scholarship enquiries are made via the College Registrar Mrs Jill Green on 9523 3123.  Testing and/or interviews takes place weekly at Tranby, at a time convenient to the applicant. Successful scholarship applicants are required to complete the standard College Enrolment Application and Acceptance process to confirm their place, and scholarship.
