Scholarship testing will take place on Sunday, 6 November 2016 at the Keysborough, Brighton, Berwick and City campuses. Auditions for Music Scholarships will take place on Thursday, 27 or Friday, 28 October 2016 at the Keysborough campus.

The Round involves an examination followed by interviews for selected candidates, with successful candidates notified early in Term 1. A non-refundable fee of $100, is charged to students who participate in the Annual Scholarship Round.
