Loreto College invites students to apply for our annual Scholarship Program. The School offers a range of opportunities for students who wish to attend the College and excel.

Loreto College Marryatville conducts a comprehensive annual Scholarship Program, offering financial grants to selected students based on either academic merit and/or excellence in one or more fields. 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 recipients 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.
