 Academic, Music and Boarding Scholarships

Please note that Wenona’s Academic, Music and Boarding (School) Scholarships for entry in 2019 have now closed.
Information about Wenona’s Academic, Boarding and Music Scholarships for entry in 2020 will be updated on our website in October 2018.

Foundation (means-tested) Scholarships

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.

Please note that Wenona’s Foundation Scholarships for entry in 2019 have now closed.

Information about Wenona’s Foundation Scholarships for entry in 2020 will be updated on our website in October 2018.
