p

What happens next?

ic

pl

ap

Applications are assessed by a selection panel. A decision is then made on which applicants will be interviewed by Yalari. You will be notified by letter, email or telephone if your application has been successful or unsuccessful, by the end of July 2019.

at

Interviews will be held in the applicant’s home or home community by Yalari staff between May and September 2019. The interview takes place with both the student applicant and their parents or guardians.

n

io

If an applicant is successful at the Yalari interview, a school will be selected by Yalari and the student applicant, along with a guardian, will be required to attend an interview at the school. School interviews will be conducted with the Head of School, who has the final approval of enrolment at that school. As Yalari has a limited number of places available at each of its partner schools, it is sometimes necessary for students to travel interstate or long distances for school, therefore applicants and families should be willing to be flexible. Applicants and families can list a preference for a particular school but this in no way guarantees that a successful applicant would attend that school.

Scholarship Fee Guidelines All selected Scholarship students will be eligible for a full or part Abstudy allowance. This payment is directed straight to the school and is used to help Yalari cover the tuition and boarding fees at our partner schools. The gap between the Abstudy allowance and the cost of tuition and boarding is made up by Yalari through fundraising, donations and sponsorship. (Applications for the Abstudy allowance should be made by the family through Centrelink after a student has been successful in being awarded a Yalari scholarship.) Abstudy pays for student travel to and from school at the beginning and end of each term.

The third and final round is an interview at the boarding school with the Head of School (Principal or Headmaster). You can take a parent with you and someone from Yalari will also meet you there. If the Head of School says ‘yes’, then you have the scholarship. The scholarship always starts in Year 7 and finishes in Year 12.
