Academic Scholarship opportunities – Year 7 to 12

The Kilmore International School conducts an annual Academic Scholarship, via ACER. The Academic Scholarships, open to new and current students in Year 7-12 in 2022 are now closed.

As an International Baccalaureate World School, we seek to form young women and men who have a true understanding of themselves, their strengths, their weaknesses, their values, and their view of the world.  Our students choose to embrace an ever-changing world with confidence, engage others with a positive, loving attitude, and are prepared to act when needed.

The Kilmore International School is a select entry School from Year 3-12, we are a non-denominational, co-educational, day and boarding School just one-hour north of Melbourne. The School delivers the prestigious International Baccalaureate Diploma in Year 11 and 12.

The heart of a Kilmore International School education is expressed in our motto, Excellentia Academica Persequenda, in pursuit of academic excellence.  Our graduates attend leading universities throughout the world, taking with them a joy of learning and a willingness to make a positive difference to the lives of others.

The School offers Academic Scholarships for students in Years 7 to 12, both current and potential students are invited to apply.

Innovation Scholarship opportunities – Year 5 to Year 10

The Innovation Scholarship allows students to demonstrate creative thinking that leads to an innovative (marketable and unique) conclusion (product).

To assist applicants in the development of their thinking we define innovation as the “melding of two, or more, previously unrelated items to create a unique and useful item”.  Applicants are required to draw on their interest/passion in two distinct areas (e.g. Cycling and Chess) to create a new item that could serve a genuine purpose (rather than pure fantasy – i.e. a cycling chess piece!).

Applicants are not expected to physically produce such an item, but are expected to present their thought processes/line of thinking in developing this new item. This presentation could take the form of an essay, a movie, a poster, audio-visual presentation, a song, painting, etc. The submission format is not crucial as the interview panel is more interested in the applicant being able to explain their thinking (success and errors) and the reasons they have followed a particular path.
