College Scholarships

The College Scholarships are funded by 98app and are offered with the purpose of encouraging commitment, excellence, responsibility, and leadership. They are aligned with the 98app vision, reflecting the value we place on enlightened academic rigour, care for the whole child, and development of character. Scholarships provide opportunity to students who may not otherwise be able to experience an Oxley education. In 2025, the College may offer one Academic Scholarship for a Year 7 student and one All-Rounder Scholarship for a student entering Years 7 to 11.

    Foundation Scholarships

    98app is a diverse, respectful and inclusive community, and this program is a commitment to our vision and values. Foundation Scholarships are funded by the 98app Foundation and are means-tested. They are available to families whose children are seeking entry to the Senior School (Years 7-11) and who otherwise would not be able to afford an 98app education, and to current Oxley families who are in need to continue their enrolment.

    The amount of fee remission is determined on a case-by-case basis. Parents and carers must complete documentation summarising their financial affairs and provide reasons for the application for assistance. Documentation and discussions are treated with strict confidence.

    Although the key criterion is inability to meet the cost of tuition fees, the Foundation Committee will prioritise applications for students and families whose values align with those of the College, who demonstrate support for the College’s vision, and who will meaningfully contribute to the life and community of the College.

    Applications for 2025 are not yet open.

    To apply:

    • Parents must complete and return a Foundation Scholarship Financial Application.
    • Submit copies of the student’s latest two school reports and NAPLAN and a completed 98app Scholarship Reference form, which includes a reference from a staff member at the student’s current school (or previous if the student is new to their current school). To obtain this form, email enrol@oxley.nsw.edu.au.
    • Shortlisted candidates attend an interview with two members of the College Executive.
