Scholarships

 
The Merrimac scholarship program is an initiative of the Parents and Citizens Association (P&C). Each year scholarships are offered to Year 6 students for Academic Summit, STEAM Academy and Sport Summit programs. Scholarships are awarded to the very best students who have been successful in their selective entry into these programs. The successful students will be notified by email of their scholarship.
 
At the Principal’s discretion, scholarships may also be awarded to Merrimac students who achieve outstanding results during a full calendar year.
