Lauriston Foundation Scholarship

(New students only)

Applications are now open for students entering Year 10 or Year 11 in 2020.

This needs-based scholarship designed for a student who exhibits good academic results, outstanding leadership qualities and the potential to make a significant contribution to the School and wider community.

Every two years, the Lauriston Foundation offers general academic scholarships to new students entering Years 10 or 11 in 2020. Financial support is provided until the end of Year 12. The level of financial assistance is 80–90% of school expenses (covers tuition fees, laptops, books, uniforms). The exact percentage is determined on a case-by-case basis.

Successful applicants must be able to demonstrate:

  • A genuine need – the student would not have been able to attend Lauriston without financial support
  • A high level of academic performance
  • Involvement in community activities and displaying the Lauriston values of ‘relationships’ and ‘engagement in life’
  • Good leadership skills and the potential to make a significant contribution to the School
  • If relevant, evidence of overcoming adversity and continued involved in all aspects of her school life will be highly regarded

Applications for the 2020 Lauriston Foundation Scholarship close on Monday 14 October 2019. All other Scholarship applications for 2020 have now closed.

  • All scholarships are awarded on the basis that the scholarship recipient will complete their education at Lauriston Girls’ School. If a student is withdrawn from the School early, all scholarship funds awarded must be repaid in full. The Principal may reconsider this requirement if the student withdrawal is the result of circumstances beyond the family’s control.
  • All scholarships are subject to annual review to confirm that the high academic and behaviour standards expected of a scholarship student have been maintained. Failure to meet School expectations in either academic performance or behaviour may result in the discontinuation of the scholarship.
