Catholic Schools Office Maitland-Newcastle Logo

Each year, the Catholic Schools Office offers up to 5 scholarships to current Year 12 students in our schools who intend to commence undergraduate courses in teacher training the following year.

Scholarships are awarded to Catholic students based on academic performance, including HSC results, suitability to be a quality professional in Catholic schools, and school recommendations. Further consideration may be given to a particular key learning area identified at the time e.g. Mathematics, Physics or PDHPE.

This scholarship provides for a total benefit of up to $7000 per recipient, payable in 5 lump sum payments over the course of 4 years. Scholarship recipients also receive an internship in a targeted diocesan school, priority interviews for employment in schools on completion of studies, support and advice with regard to faith accreditation, and professional assistance with writing applications to schools and preparing for interviews.

Interested students should read the Scholarships for Teacher Education information sheet for details on how to apply, and complete the 2024 Teacher Education Scholarship Application Form
