Independent School Scholarships in Australia Print

Independent School Scholarships in Australia


Many exclusive private schools in Australia provide scholarships and bursary programs to students who excell in one or more areas, such as academics, arts, music, sports, social services, in order to
  • allow those who are otherwise unable to afford a private education to further develop their skills, talents, and leadership in their given fields
  • provide opportunities for the scholarship/ bursary holders to make significant contributions to the various aspects of the school life
  • provide the rest of the students in their schools with role models and leadership, and also
  • enhance the school’s achievements and profile in the given areas


All scholarships and bursaries are performance-based, which entitle their holders partial or full reduction of school fees, and may extend to other types of financial assistance and opportunities, eg. for music scholarship holders in some cases their music tuitions are paid for by their schools.


Some schools provide scholarships to primary school students. More commonly, scholarships are for students in their high school years.


Scholarships offered can cover various periods, some for one year, some for the whole six years of high school education of the students. However, the scholarships and bursaries awarded are subject to periodical performance reviews.


In some schools, multiple scholarships can be offered to talented students, eg. 50% of academic scholarship plus 25% of music scholarship, while other students have to choose only one.


Funds for scholarships and bursaries come from accumulated donations of past students and the school communities. The decisions of awarding scholarships and bursaries are usually made jointly by the school councils and the schools, for matters such as the number of scholarships awarded in a particular year, the amount and the terms of each scholarship.


Current scholarship holders are expected to continue their contribution to the pool of funds upon establishing themselves successfully in the future.
