Wenona offers a range of scholarships to assist girls from all backgrounds to benefit from a Wenona education.
Wenona's caring community welcomes people of all backgrounds, and students with Indigenous Australian and Torres Strait Islander heritage are encouraged to apply.
Wenona offers School, Foundation (means-tested) and Alumnae Scholarships. Scholarship applicants do not need to submit a Wenona Application for Enrolment form in addition to the Scholarship application process.

Wenona School Scholarships for entry in 2018 are now closed:
Wenona academic scholarships offer full or part remission of tuition fees, and are offered at the discretion of the Principal on the basis of scholarship test results and interviews which follow.
Please read our General Information for Boarding Scholarship Applicants (PDF 274KB). Boarding Scholarship applicants are expected to demonstrate a commitment to their studies, as well as extra-curricular and community involvement.
Boarding scholarships offer full or part remission of boarding fees, and are offered at the discretion of the Principal on the basis of the test results, the submitted boarding scholarship application and interviews which follow.
Wenona Music Scholarships offer full or part remission of tuition fees, and are offered at the discretion of the Principal on the basis of the submitted Music Background Form and audition.
Wenona is committed to creating additional opportunities for girls to attend the School. Means-tested scholarships are made available through the Wenona Foundation and the generosity of donors, and are available to external applicants only. They are not available for students currently attending Wenona.
A means-tested scholarship is an award that is distributed based on financial need, and differs from a regular scholarship in that no academic performance or related criteria apply. Scholarships are awarded to students whose families would not otherwise be in a position to provide a Wenona education.
These scholarships are administered by the Foundation Office, independent of the general academic, boarding and music scholarships.
In making an application for a means tested scholarship at Wenona, families will be required to provide financial information to show that meeting the cost of school fees is difficult; some donors may set specific eligibility criteria that also need to be met. This will be made known when the School seeks applications. Decisions on means-tested scholarship awards are communicated in writing by the School Principal to the recipient’s parents/guardians. Applications and means-testing will be treated with the utmost confidentiality.
All scholarship recipients are subject to annual review based on the initial criteria of each scholarship.
Means-tested scholarship applications close Thursday 6 April, 2017. Please contact the Enrolments Office on firstname.lastname@example.org or 02 9409 4440 to request an application form.
For further information about all Alumnae Scholarships, please contact the Community Engagement and Events Manager on 02 9409 4456 or email@example.com.
Wenona Alumnae scholarship applications close on Friday 23 June, 2017. These scholarships are not granted on the basis of a generational connection to Wenona.
