'The people are the most memorable part of Trinity College. I always felt welcome in such a harmonious community. I have had the pleasure of being taught by experienced, helpful teachers, who not only helped in academic situations, but made sure I developed skills that I wouldn’t have normally found in a textbook.' – Tracelyn Victoria Tardjono, October Fast Track 2018



Scholarships are awarded competitively on the basis of academic merit. Eligible students will be chosen from each Foundation Studies program, and by their geographic region. 

To be eligible, you’ll have excellent high school results, be not permanently living in Australia as a resident, and will need to submit a completed Trinity College Foundation Studies application

There’s no need to apply for a separate application for scholarship, as your Trinity College application will form the basis of the decision. 

Scholarships are awarded prior to an intake commencing only and if you’re successful in being offered a place at Trinity College, you’ll be notified by email within two weeks of the selection round being held.

In 2021, Trinity College will award forty 50% tuition fee remissions for students joining the Foundation Studies program.
