St Mary's College Scholarships


St Mary's College has been educating girls in the Dominican Catholic tradition since 1869. We value student excellence and seek to recognise this by providing several scholarships for students who would not otherwise be able to attend the College. A St Mary's College Scholarship offers your daughter the opportunity to feel empowered to achieve her goals and aspirations.

Each year we offer a limited number of scholarships to students who demonstrate academic achievement and contribute to their community through extra-curricular activities, leadership and justice responsibilities and their own personal qualities. 

Scholarship Program for 2026

  • St Mary's College All-Rounder Principal's Scholarship 
  • Catholic Parish Primary School Scholarship
  • Reconciliation Scholarship


Scholarship candidates will demonstrate outstanding personal values, leadership potential, engagement in learning and a commitment to social justice. 

Applications are made online by completing both the Enrolment Application Form and the Scholarship Application Form, accompanied by the required documents stated in the criteria.

Scholarships open in June each year, two calendar years before entry, and close in April the year before commencement. Shortlisted applications will be contacted to attend an interview with the Principal.
