Scholarships

2021 Academic Scholarships are now open.

St Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls is proud to offer scholarships to students with outstanding ability through academic, music, boarding, and the Old Scholars’ Association (OSA).

Scholarships are open to all students commencing Year 7, Year 10 and Year 11 in 2021 and you are warmly invited to apply.
Application Process:

1. Complete the online registration by Friday 17 April 2020

2. Complete the St Hilda’s Scholarship Cover Sheet and return with any supporting documentation to enrol@sthildas.wa.edu.au by Friday 17 April 2020

Scholarships are awarded for the duration of a student’s education at St Hilda’s and are reviewed at the end of each year. The award of a scholarship is at the discretion of the Principal and not all scholarships are awarded each year. Scholarships of varying values provide part or full remission of tuition fees.

St Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls uses an external testing agency, Academic Assessment Services (AAS), to manage its scholarship program. Once you have registered your daughter online and paid the $100 registration fee to AAS, please submit the following documents to the School (address details on the cover sheet). Please note: the single application fee of $100 covers all St Hilda’s scholarships for which the applicant applies. However, it does not cover the cost of separate scholarship applications to the other schools.

The academic testing and the auditions for Music Scholarships are held at our Senior School campus and scheduled for Tuesday 28 April 2020.

Selected applicants will be invited to an interview with our Principal in June 2020.  The process concludes by mid-July and all applicants will receive a printed report.
