SEDA College (SA) and our partners are pleased to announce that Scholarships are available for Year 11 and 12 Students in South Australia for the 2024 academic year. Scholarship applications are welcome by any students who are offered a place within one of our programs.

Scholarships and Bursaries are open to all SEDA applicants who meet the criteria. Additionally, there are several Indigenous Scholarships available. Indigenous young people who are passionate about sport are highly encouraged to apply.


The three Scholarships available are Excellence, Equity and First Nations.


As a Scholarship or Bursary student, in addition to completing senior secondary education with the College, all will have the opportunity to undertake high-quality personal development in the College’s ‘Leadership and Mentoring Program.’


This development will be accessible in a supportive learning environment that enables all to build up a portfolio of work and academic skills, through hands on learning, linked strongly to the sport and recreation industry. Further, all will have significant opportunities to develop networks, unique experiences and create a planned, personalised and suitable pathway to employment and/or higher education.
