Applying for an Academic Scholarship

Listed below is a list of our criteria and conditions about the Scholarship process at the International School of Western Australia.


Academic Scholarships are offered in recognition of;

  • Students enrolling in Year 6 to Year 11
  • Attainment of high academic results
  • Families who qualify for the self-funded fee schedule

Students may apply for an Academic Scholarship by sending through an e-portfolio including:

  • information about student which addresses three or more of the International Baccalaureate Learner Profile;
  • information about education (e.g. school reports, NAPLAN results, as well as interesting project/activity recently completed)
  • aspirations for future study, career and lifestyle (consider our School values of international mindedness, open-mindedness, cultural mindedness)
  • explanation of why he/she will be a good role model for peers 


The Academic Scholarship process involves the following;

  • A Senior Academic Panel will review the e-portfolio and short-list candidates.
  • Shortlisted candidates will participate in an interview with members of the Senior Academic Panel.
  • Success interview candidates will be recommended to the Principal.


  • Academic Scholarships are to the value of a 20% reduction of the tuition fees only. Academic Scholarships do not cover any other fees the school may charge.
  • The number of Academic Scholarships available each academic year will depend on student enrolment numbers and the approved school budget for that academic year.
  • Scholarships applications must be submitted 13 weeks before the end of semester.
  • Students awarded an Academic Scholarship must uphold a high academic standard and the school’s code of behaviour.
  • Academic Scholarships are discretionary, with the Principal making the final decision.


Please start to plan this e-portfolio and send the final presentation to the Registrar. A presentation review date will be scheduled within two weeks of receipt of the e-portfolio.  For more information, contact Megan DePiazz, via
