Netball Scholarships

Netball Scholarships are made available through the College Board. Each Scholarship covers a certain percentage of the applicants tuition fees at the College.

Netball Scholarships are allocated on a sliding scale from 10 100% depending on achievements of each athlete in the Netball WA Pathway (see attached documents).

All Scholarships are formally reviewed at the completion of Term One, Term Two and Semester Two. Alterations may be made to the Scholarship percentages at these times.

All Scholarship holders are required to re-apply in September each year. (Please see the section on Scholarship Eligibility.)

Applications :

Netball Scholarship Application forms (and Admission for Application forms) for 2011 need to be completed and forwarded to the College by Friday 15 October 2010.

All applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application in writing by November 2010.

Students enrolling after the Scholarship Application dates (ie after October 2010) are still able to apply for a Scholarship, though their success will be affected by the number of Scholarships already allocated for that year.

Once a Scholarship Application has been received, a member of the Netball Program staff will contact the applicant. Wherever possible, applicants will be viewed in their regular playing environment and key coaches will be contacted to provide a reference.

Should it not be possible for a staff member of the Specialised Netball Program to view the applicant in person, the applicant is requested to submit a video with their application.

The video should be of the applicant playing in their preferred position/s in a competitive game and must be a minimum of 15 minutes duration.

Please note, athletes, particularly at a Year 7, 8 and 9 level are viewed with their potential for development in mind. Therefore, limited playing experience should not prohibit potential Netballers from applying for a Scholarship.
