All scholarships are awarded on the basis that the scholarship recipient will complete their education to Year 12 at Lauriston Girls' School.

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.
