SEDA College NSW has an ongoing commitment to supporting promising young people and is fortunate to be able to offer scholarships and bursaries for entry into our Year 11 HSC Program.

Applications for 2022 are now open.


SEDA College NSW Merit Scholarships seek to support outstanding all-rounders by awarding up to 3 partially funded scholarships in 2022. Merit Scholarships provide partial fee relief (currently valued at $4,400 per year) and will be awarded for each of a student’s two years of study at the College (total value $8,800).

Recipients of a SEDA College Merit Scholarship will be exceptional young people who have the potential to make a significant positive contribution to the College and act as an ambassador to the wider community.

Successful applicants don’t need to be straight-A students or elite sportspeople, but will be able to demonstrate their commitment to the College’s core values through a history of sporting involvement, community volunteering and academic accomplishments.


The SEDA College Kickstart Award is a bursary that seeks to support students who may not otherwise be able to attend the College.

This award is aimed at supporting the following students so that they can complete Year 11 and 12 and achieve their HSC at SEDA College NSW:

  • Students of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent, and/or;
  • Students from any background where one or both parents have not completed Year 12, and/or;
  • Students who are economically disadvantaged.

In 2022, the Award provides bursaries for up to 5 fee-free positions ($6,100 value per year) and 2 partial fee relief positions ($4,100 value per year) at the College. Successful applicants will receive the bursary for both Year 11 and Year 12.

Recipients of the SEDA College Kickstart Award will be young people who have the potential to complete Year 12, make a positive contribution to the College and act as an ambassador for the College to the wider community.
