The St Catherine's Indigenous education program is proudly supported by the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation (AIEF) to offer Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students access to outstanding educational opportunities for secondary schooling. These scholarships are open to Indigenous students who wish to be boarders at the school.
AIEF scholarships are targeted at students who have the requisite enthusiasm, aspiration and commitment to complete Year 12 and transition to a sustainable career. Students with demonstrated family support are significantly more likely to achieve this outcome and, as a measure of this support, a financial commitment of a minimum of $400 per term is required for those eligible for full ABSTUDY benefits; otherwise parental income directly determines the amount of the financial contribution.
The following information is required when applying for an AIEF Indigenous Scholarship.
Consideration will also be given to academic progress, commitment to study and participation in cocurricular and other school and community activities.
Applications must be submitted to the Enrolments office by Friday 22 June 2018 via email or mail.

St Catherine's School has a long tradition of promoting excellence in music through our scholarship program. We are looking for gifted students who have a passion for music and wish to see their dedication celebrated and nurtured. Our music scholarship students are required to study music in their academic program and contribute fully to the musical life of the School through ensembles and performances. Ensembles include senior orchestra, string ensembles, concert bands, stage bands, choirs and chamber ensembles.
Applicants should have highly developed skills on their preferred instrument. Our music department can help you with more information on the standards we look for. Scholarships are awarded primarily on the basis of audition, with reference to school reports. The audition will include sight reading, aural tests and an interview and students will also be asked to:
Present two contrasting pieces on their preferred instrument.
Present an additional piece on a second instrument if they choose.
Provide their own accompanist, if needed
Bring a portfolio of their musical achievements to the audition, including examination results, general school reports and Naplan.
In 1856 St Catherine's School was established as a boarding school for the daughters of clergy. Country boarding scholarships reflect the School's continuing commitment to providing outstanding educational opportunities for girls from rural areas.
Country boarding scholarships are awarded each year to girls entering Years 7-11 who demonstrate sporting and or academic ability and commitment to study, but whose financial situation precludes them from attending the school.
The scholarships may cover partial or full tuition fees for schooling until the end of Year 12. They do not cover boarding fees, which are always the responsibility of the family. It is a condition of the scholarship that the recipient remains a boarder for the duration of her time at St Catherine's.
Because country boarding scholarships are means-related, families are required to submit their ATO Notice of Assessments for the past two years and a statement of net worth, signed by an accounting professional. All information will be treated confidentially and financial documents will be returned when the scholarship process is complete.
One scholarship is awarded every second year and is available for 2020. This scholarship is awarded to a daughter or granddaughter of a St Catherine's Old Girl who would enhance the academic life of the school, but whose financial situation precludes her from attending. The scholarship may cover partial or full tuition fees for schooling until the end of Year 12.
Applicants for this scholarship should be able to demonstrate high academic ability and potential.
