Scholarships and Bursaries

Scholarships and Bursaries

The VCE Summer School is passionate about reaching out to students facing educational disadvantage to ensure the program benefits the students who need it most. VCESS’ mission is to ensure that all Victorian students can receive a head start on their VCE studies regardless of the financial circumstances that they face. With this in mind, we offer a variety of options for students to reduce or remove the cost of attendance.


In order to ensure that the cost of the program is not a burden to students facing financial disadvantage, VCESS is proud to partner with community groups (particularly Rotary Clubs) in order to sponsor places for students. The generosity of these community groups has allowed many VCE students to attend VCESS at a minimal cost. If you are interested in applying for a bursary, please tick ‘Yes’ under the ‘Bursary’ section when applying for the program.


There are a number of scholarships available to Indigenous students. We can also extend payment deadlines, and organise payment schedules if need be. Please contact the directors if you would like to propose an alternative payment arrangement. Wherever possible, we seek to make VCESS accessible for your circumstances.


If you have any further queries regarding scholarships or bursaries, please do not hesitate to contact the Directors here.
