Scholarships at PLC

PLC aims to nurture the overall development of each girl. Her progression towards becoming an independent, responsible citizen, equipped with skills for life, begins from the time she enters PLC, whatever her age. 

PLC accepts applications for scholarships for entry into Years 7-11 inclusive. 


  • Candidates are expected to be currently studying in the year prior to the entry level for which they are applying. 
  • Current PLC Year 6 girls are eligible to apply. 
  • Students currently attending PLC Senior School are not eligible to apply.  

Scholarships awarded may include Academic, General Excellence, Music and Boarding and Old Collegian scholarships to enable talented students to enjoy a PLC education. Daughters and grand daughters of Old Collegians are encouraged to apply.


Scholarship registration has closed for 2022 entry. 

Please check carefully before submitting your registration to sit for a scholarship as schools may hold their examination on the same day. In this case, to be eligible for a scholarship to PLC Melbourne, the candidate must register and sit the scholarship examination at PLC. 

Country and overseas candidates may elect to sit the examination at an alternative venue. 

All scholarships will be awarded on the basis of the results of the testing, the most recent school report and in some cases, an interview. 


A fee of $120 for each candidate covers entry for one or more of the scholarships available.

To sit the examination at a country centre, an additional $100 will be charged. ACER adds a surcharge for students who sit the examination overseas, making the fee for those students $350. 

The number and type of scholarships awarded is dependent upon the quality of applicants and the places available. Scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the Principal, whose decision is final, and no correspondence will be entered into.
