The Hamilton and Alexandra College is a co-educational day and boarding school located in Hamilton, Victoria, Australia. We are extremely proud of our strong history and traditional values and equally proud of our outstanding facilities and innovative educational programs.
The Hamilton and Alexandra College is proud to award scholarships to boys and girls of exceptional academic potential who will make a significant contribution to the life of the College and beyond as future citizens.
The College has two types of scholarships available for students to apply for.
We pride ourselves on a desire to attract the best and brightest students to our College. Our core business is education, so the pursuit of excellence underpins our pedagogy. Named after the Ivy growing on the Tower Building, which is synonymous with College and also symbolises growth and resilience, the Ivy Scholarship is a merit based scholarship and recipients are required to sit the EduTest exam, hosted by a third party educational assessment organisation. Ivy Scholarships are awarded based on ability in both academic and co-curricular areas, school reports and on the results of interviews.
Research indicates the presence of bright minds and talented students lifts the entire performance of the cohort.
Enlivens the soul. Our commitment to music is reflected by the sheer number of musical ensembles, choirs, jazz and string quartets at College. Through the Ivy Scholarship program, we attract gifted students to enhance our already strong musical focus.
Is a wonderful part of regional communities and provides an opportunity to develop leadership and teamwork skills beyond the classroom. Students awarded an Ivy Scholarship are expected to be a role model in the wider College sport and the wider community.
Provide an outlet that helps students to reach their full academic potential. This scholarship is offered to students who demonstrate talent and potential in the Arts (Performing and/or Visual). The Ivy Scholarship attracts students committed to the arts; expanding our artistic reputation.
College has a long history of supporting regional and rural families to access an independent education. We understand that the tyranny of distance can limit access to quality education and Ivy Scholarships are available for students that would like to join the Boarding House community.

We understand that for many, the costs of an independent education are significant and may prevent students from attending this amazing school. Our Equity Scholarships are designed to support families who require financial assistance, that understand and prioritise the benefit of receiving a quality, independent education. Named after the iconic Tower Building that represents the senior school, we aim to offer Tower Scholarships each year for students in Year 7 – 12.
We are passionate about supporting worthy students, who cannot afford the full tuition fees, to benefit from the extraordinary education offered at our College. We are proud that so many Old Collegian scholarship recipients have made a profound impact on society and are committed to continue offering equity scholarships.
We are proud to support regional rural families in their educational journeys. We understand that the tyranny of distance can limit access to quality education. Economic challenges and natural disasters, such as drought, can end boarding traditions that may span generations and where possible, we prevent this from happening.
