Scholarships & Bursaries

INFORMATION AND HOW TO APPLY

Scholarships and Bursaries are available to students enrolling in Years 7 to 12 in 2018.

Preference is given to those applicants who would greatly benefit from a St Luke’s education, but who, without financial assistance would be unable to attend.

Scholarships and Bursaries are awarded up to 50% of the tuition fee depending on the pool of applicants and the scholarships available, as well as at the discretion of the Principal. Enrolment fees, enrolment deposit, capital levy, text book hire cost and uniform purchases are the responsibility of the family. St Luke’s fully inclusive fee structure ensures all ‘normal’ costs associated with a students education are contained within the tuition fees.

Scholarships and Bursaries are generally awarded for the duration of a students time at St Luke’s provided all conditions upon which the Scholarship was awarded are met. This includes general conditions applying to all scholarships, and specific conditions applying to individual scholarships.

General conditions applying to all scholarships are subject to an annual review and include the following:

  • Be supportive of the ethos of St Luke’s Anglican School
  • Contribute in a positive manner to the co-curricular life of the School
  • Abide by the rules, regulations and expectations in place during their time at St Luke’s Anglican School
