              Scholarship Program for 2020

Loreto College Marryatville conducts a comprehensive, annual Scholarship Program. A scholarship is a financial grant awarded to a student based on either academic merit and/or excellence in the fields outlined in the Loreto Scholarship Program. A scholarship can provide up to 50% remission of tuition fees as set by the College Board and is applicable for the duration of the student’s schooling until the completion of Year 12. 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 College 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.
