SCEGGS is a diverse and inclusive school and, for generations, has been supporting girls in need, and their families. The expansion of our Scholarship Program embodies this commitment.
We believe a vibrant and visible Scholarship Program teaches our girls the values of diversity, tolerance, social justice, and community service – all central to our ethos.
We established the SCEGGS Scholarship Fund in 2006, and now have over $12 million in the Fund to support means–tested scholarships in the school. Our goal is to reach a total of more than $20 million in this same fund over the next three years.
Currently, we have 35 students on means tested scholarships at different levels – about half of these are full scholarships and half are part scholarships providing various levels of fee relief.
“The diversity of the student population is so important to SCEGGS. In the endeavour to increase our mean-tested scholarships we will not only offer girls the opportunity to experience a SCEGGS education but also create a vibrant and exciting place to learn for all our girls.
We want SCEGGS to be a place of inquiry and wonder, where the learning comes from the individual’s own discovery and exploration, not just in the classroom, but also through their daily interactions.“
