Scholarships & Bursaries

Scholarships and Bursaries

NEGS offers a number of scholarships each year to girls entering Years 7 to 11.  These scholarships are offered to girls who show particular talent and passion across a number of fields, from the sporting or equestrian arenas, to the music room, at the design and visual arts desk, and in academia. This is a chance to welcome bright minds and keen sportswomen who will flourish at NEGS and relish in the opportunities our school provides.

Applications for all other Scholarships & Bursaries are accepted year-round, though we do offer Round one by the end of March. Students are eligible to apply for more than one scholarship. However, if successful, only one scholarship offer will be made.  Applicants are entitled to hold both a scholarship and a bursary (if successful).

Applications for Academic Scholarships close 6 February 2023.

Applications for other Scholarships close 30 March 2023.

Scholarship and Bursary Conditions

IMPORTANT – Applicants for ALL scholarships and bursaries are required to:

  1. Complete and submit the relevant scholarship/bursary application form
  2. Complete and submit an Application for Enrolment form (unless this has been completed previously) and provide all documentation referred to in that form
  3. Attend an interview with the Principal
  4. Provide portfolios where requested (Jean Newall All Rounder Scholarship, Visual Arts & Design Scholarship and Aneeta Sundararaj Scholarship).

Scholarships and Bursaries are reviewed on an annual basis and it is the School’s expectation that recipients maintain all-round commitment to all areas of their schooling.  They are intended for those students who are committed to continuing their education through to the completion of Year 12 at NEGS.  Bursaries are means-tested, and families are required to submit their financial statements each year by the end of October.

The Scholarships entitle the recipients to part remission of tuition fees to the end of Year 12. Bursaries entitle the recipients to part remission of boarding fees to the end of Year 12. All other expenses must be met at the full rate.

NEGS reserves the right to withdraw a scholarship or bursary from any scholarship holder.
