"Thank you for making a profound impact on my education and shaping the person I am becoming."

~ Foundation Scholarship Recipient 

The Lauriston Foundation is proud to offer up to two needs-based Foundation Scholarships which will provide financial support to students entering Year 7 until graduation in Year 12. These scholarships have been created to support girls who demonstrate intellectual ability, community mindedness and good character, and who would not otherwise have the chance to experience the outstanding education and opportunities at Lauriston. This is consistent with Lauriston's desire to be an inclusive, all-round school that embraces a wide variety of students from varied backgrounds, who can add to the vibrancy and strength of our community.

Our first Foundation Scholar commenced at Lauriston in 2023. Her Lauriston education was made possible by those who supported the Lauriston Giving Day in 2022. 

The Foundation Scholarships provide full remission for tuition fees and will cover the following additional expenses:

  • Purchase of textbooks and online programs used by the School
  • A new laptop in Year 7 and Year 10
  • Residential fee for the Year 9 Howqua year
  • Provision of gear and equipment required for the Year 9 Howqua year
  • Camps at Year 7 and Year 8
  • Local excursions
  • Financial support to the applicant's family for the purchase of School Uniform items      ยท     

"The Lauriston Foundation Scholarships not only provide an opportunity for an individual to receive a high-quality education but the ripple effect of these scholarships will no doubt change the lives of their families and communities as well."
