Expect great things. Schools don't have to be purely theoretical. They can be places where students think about real-world problems and look for solutions. This develops new capabilities and attributes - creativity, invention and problem-solving.

At BBC, we challenge boys to think not just about what they will do to succeed for themselves, but what their role is in the world.

Brisbane Boys' College offers a number of scholarships and bursaries across various categories and provides opportunities for boys to benefit from a BBC education, who may not have been able to do so without financial assistance.

Our Open Mornings and Open Day make for ideal times to see for yourself the opportunities available for boys. 

All scholarship applicants are required to forward the following documents (see Document Checklist) to Student Admissions before the nominated closing date.
