Principal Opportunity Scholarships
The Principals Opportunity Scholarship is awarded, at the Principals discretion, to those who would not otherwise be financially able to attend Freshwater Christian College. Applications are accepted and assessed year-round for students in Grade Prep to Year 12. Principal’s Opportunity Scholarships are means-tested and thus applicants are
required to provide some financial information to the school.
