Scholarships

St Aidan's is proud to offer scholarships to students with outstanding ability who wish to commence in Year 7-10 in 2022.

Scholarships at St Aidan’s Anglican Girls’ School are competitive and due to demand for places and our belief that a smaller school environment has great benefits, scholarship offerings are limited.

Due to the large amount of applications received only shortlisted applicants will be offered interviews.

Scholarships are awarded for the duration of a student's education at St Aidan's and are reviewed at the end of each year. Scholarships provide part remission of tuition fees. 

Applicants can apply for multiple categories if applicable.

ACADEMIC

To be considered for an Academic Scholarship, you must complete the ACER (Australian Council for Educational Research) Examination that is to be held in February 2021 at St Aidan’s Anglican Girls' School and other selected locations.

Based on the ACER Scholarship Examination results, previous academic record, and an interview with the Principal for shortlisted applicants, scholarships may be offered to students who exhibit qualities compatible with the aims and ethos of St Aidan's Anglican Girls' School. Those completing the ACER Examination also need to fill out the St Aidan's scholarship application form using the link at the bottom of this page.
