Scholarship Program for 2018

Loreto College invites students to apply for our annual Scholarship program. Our program offers a range of options and a breadth of opportunities for students to attend and excel in our College.

              Scholarship Program for 2018

A scholarship is a financial grant awarded to a student, based either on academic merit or on excellence in the fields outlined in the Loreto Scholarship Program. Each financial grant awarded to scholarship winners is at the discretion of the Principal and may vary from year to year.

All scholarship holders are expected to complete their secondary education at Loreto Marryatville, to maintain high standards of academic achievement and behaviour, and to contribute positively and enthusiastically to all aspects of College life, including the co-curricular program.

Each scholarship holder’s progress in the College and contribution to the wider life of the College will be reviewed annually. No student may hold more than one scholarship at any one time.

An interview with short-listed applicants will determine whether a scholarship is offered. Music shortlisted applicants will also be required to audition with the Music Co-ordinator.
