Scholarships and Bursaries

Pacific Lutheran College offers a rich education for a well-rounded life, providing students with unique opportunities to enhance their learning and further explore their potential in all aspects of their education.

As part of our approach, the College offers Academic, General Excellence, Music and Sport scholarships for selected year levels. All four types of scholarships are merit based. Each year, a small number of bursaries are also allocated on the basis of financial need. Both scholarships and bursaries provide for a percentage remission of tuition fees, which is determined by the performance of the candidate.

Further details about scholarships and bursaries can be obtained from the College Registrar, Mrs Chris Henschke via 5436 7300 or chenschke@pacluth.qld.edu.au.
