Funds donated to the Scholarship Fund are used each year to offer students from diverse backgrounds, including regional, rural and indigenous students, the opportunity to secure a St Margaret's education or to support current students whose families may be experiencing circumstances which would otherwise prevent them from completing their education at St Margaret's. Scholarships and bursaries are offered to a small number of students at St Margaret's and are awarded at the discretion of the Principal.
Contributions to the Scholarship Fund may be regarded as an investment in the current student body as funds go to students who are in financial need and/or who demonstrate the ability and commitment to receive a St Margaret's education and be role models for their fellow students.
Scholarships and bursaries are ongoing or one-off benefit payments to students to cover school fees, textbooks and other related educational expenses such as uniforms, travel, boarding or living costs.
Typically, scholarships and prizes are awarded on merit. Bursaries are awarded for reasons of equity, including experiencing financial disadvantage or hardship.
