Indigenous Scholarships

The Indigenous Scholarship Program is part of our commitment to Indigenous Australia. The School provides up to four places a year for Indigenous Australian boys.

The program is designed to encourage the boys to continue their studies at a university in Victoria. The scholarship covers full remission of tuition fees, uniforms and books.

Indigenous Scholarships are limited, and all places for 2022 have been filled.

Scholarships for St Paul’s Cathedral Choir

Trinity is the official Choir School for St Paul’s Cathedral.

A high level of commitment is expected, but timetables are arranged so that the choir does not interfere with school work or sport. The musical training is a gateway to excellence and provides a firm foundation for academic success.

Previous musical training is not essential.

Entrance for the Choir is by audition at the Cathedral.
A Scholarship for St Paul’s Choir is subject to a periodic performance review which addresses the criteria applicable to all scholarships at Trinity whilst laying particular emphasis on the standards of St Paul’s Cathedral Choir.

Enquiries can be made through Philip Nicholls at St Paul’s Cathedral on +61 3 9653 4333.

Holy Trinity Choir

The choir accepts expressions of interest from students from Year 4 and up at any time (for choir starting February each year). Students are encouraged to perform a basic audition to test singing ability and join the choir as probationers for one term before being accepted as full choristers. They then become eligible for a 10% scholarship. Exceptional senior students are sometimes offered a 15-20% scholarship during their final years of school. Choristers must also be in at least one of the school choirs to receive the scholarship. 

The commitment for the students is mostly limited to Sunday mornings 9.00am-12.00pm, with extra commitments over Easter and Christmas, otherwise following school terms. The choir is a mixed choir of adults and children, male and female.
