We offer scholarships based on academic merit and financial need. These range from 1/4 to 1/2 scholarships. The number of scholarships offered vary from year to year, depending on donations to the scholarship fund.
In order to apply for a scholarship, you will need to have a confirmed place as a Mandelbaum House resident before we can review your application. This includes paying the full bond. The 2017 scholarship form can be found here.
The Scholarship Committee reviews scholarship applications and makes recommendations to the Mandelbaum House chairman, who gives final approval.
Scholarships are awarded on an annual basis, so recipients need to apply each year.
Friday 20 January 2017: Applications close at 10am (Sydney time) for 2017 scholarships.

Mandelbaum House is a not-for-profit organisation and does not receive any government or institutional financial assistance. We therefore depend on donations and bequests from the Mandelbaum House community and friends to fund scholarships and other philanthropic projects and, most importantly, keep the college affordable for all potential residents.
As a young and small college, we have limited numbers of alumni who are in a position to support future residents. If you are able to financially assist students to live at Mandelbaum House, please complete the Mandelbaum House Donation Form.
We’re extremely grateful to the many donors who provide ongoing support to the Mandelbaum House scholarship program. This includes Mrs Valmae Freilich and her late husband, Dr Herbert Freilich, who have contributed to our scholarship fund for over 12 years in the name of Dr Freilich’s late parents, Max and Sasha Freilich.
Mandelbaum House residents have the opportunity to give all or part of their security bond ($1200) to the scholarship fund as a tax-deductible donation when they leave the college. Those who do so recognise that these donations will give future residents in need the opportunity to be part of the warm and supportive Mandelbaum community.
