Lauriston Girls’ School is focused on supporting young girls so that they have the opportunity to attend Lauriston in their Senior College years. Through the Scholarship program, these girls receive a life-changing gift. To hear from Scholarship recipients about the impact this powerful gift of education has had on their lives, read our Scholarship Stories

The Foundation Scholarship

Established with the generous support of our donors, the Foundation Scholarship provides financial assistance to a student who would otherwise be unable to experience a Lauriston education. Awarded on the basis of above-average results achieved in the annual scholarship examination, school reports and an interview, this scholarship contributes substantially towards tuition costs; in most cases, the scholarship will cover 80% of the student’s fees, with discretion up to 100% (distributed on a case-by-case basis).

Currently, one Foundation scholarship is offered to a student every two to three years, thanks to the generosity of donors. As this fund grows, it is the Foundation’s goal to extend this offer to four students at a time.

Your support, no matter the size, makes an incredible impact and will provide students with the opportunity to experience a life-changing education.

Creative and Performing Arts Scholarship

The Creative and Performing Arts Scholarship will be offered to a new student in Years 10 or 11 with an affinity for the Arts who would otherwise not be able to experience a Lauriston education. As the Foundation’s newest scholarship, the availability of this fund is dependent on the generosity of our donors through our fundraising endeavours. As well as artistic abilities, candidates will be assessed based on above-average results achieved in the annual scholarship examination, school reports and an interview.

We are currently seeking donations for this scholarship. Your support, no matter the size, will allow us to offer this new fund to a deserving student and make a life-changing impact on their education journey.

Belinda Phillips Goldman Sachs Memorial Scholarship

Established in 2015, the Belinda Phillips Goldman Sachs Memorial Scholarship is a perpetual fund that supports a talented all-rounder who wouldn’t normally have the chance to attend Lauriston. The scholarship was created by Richard and Annabelle Phillips in memory of Richard’s sister Belinda, a passionate sports advocate, who died tragically with her daughter Olivia in a car accident. Richard and Annabelle’s philosophy regarding an educational experience is that it should be a balanced approach, with children needing exposure to a range of activities. They see participation in sport as key to the development of a young person and playing in a team as a wonderful way to learn teamwork, resilience and persistence.

We are not seeking donations for the Belinda Phillips Goldman Sachs Memorial Scholarship.
