Joseph Cardijn Scholarship

Applications for the 2019 Joseph Cardijn Scholarship have now closed.

Cardijn College awards this three-year scholarship to students enrolling in Year 7.

From 2021, students will be able to apply in Year 9 for a three-year Joseph Cardijn Scholarship that will be awarded for students entering Year 10.


The Joseph Cardijn Scholarship is awarded to students who are high achievers in their academic pursuits.

All applicants will be asked to sit a 45-minute general abilities test. The families whose children are awarded a scholarship will be offered a three-year scholarship that covers the tuition fees for the student up to and including Year 9.

Please be aware that students awarded this scholarship will need to meet the academic standards for this scholarship. Their progress will be reviewed annually.

To support the criteria of being a high achiever in academic pursuits, families are asked to submit with the application form their child’s:
1. Latest school results, and
2. Most recent NAPLAN scores.


Scholarship applications close at the end of Term 3, five terms prior to the year of commencement.

The Scholarship Panel will review all applications and students will be invited to sit their general abilities test early in Term 4.

Families will be notified before the end of Term 4 whether their child has been awarded a scholarship.
