Cultural Scholarships


St Aidan’s is dedicated to supporting the educational journey of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. We recognise the importance of fostering an inclusive and supportive environment where all students are given the opportunity to thrive academically, culturally, spiritually, physically, and socially. Scholarships are awarded at the sole discretion of the Principal.

Our Cultural Scholarships are designed to provide financial assistance to students who would otherwise be unable to receive a St Aidan’s education. These scholarships provide students with:

  1. Financial Support
    St Aidan’s will provide financial assistance to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to help cover school fees, uniform costs, educational resources, and extra-curricular activities.
  2. Cultural Support
    St Aidan’s will provide tailored support and mentoring programs to scholarship recipients.
  3. Community Engagement
    St Aidan’s will encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to actively engage with their own communities and those local to St Aidan’s to develop and share their cultural knowledge and experiences with the school community.

We believe a St Aidan’s education empowers and enables girls and young women. Through our Cultural Scholarships, we are committed to empowering students to reach their full potential whilst nurturing each student’s personal aspirations within a vibrant learner-centred community.

Please note, the scholarship selection process is competitive and not all candidates who meet the basic criteria proceed to interview. 

To apply for a Cultural Scholarship, families are invited to submit an application outlining their interest in attending St Aidan’s, cultural background, school achievements, and contributions to the community.
