SCHOLARSHIPS, AWARDS & BURSARIES
St Ann’s was originally founded in 1939 with a view to supporting women, in particular those who faced hardship living in remote regional areas. Today, St Ann’s is co-educational, but a great many of our students continue to come from rural areas in South Australia and across the nation.
St Ann’s also continues with the tradition of offering financial support in the form of Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries. They are given annually – some on the basis of academic performance, others on a case of need, some a mix of both.
In 2019, St Ann’s gave more than $80,000 in Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries.
Anyone who attends St Ann’s – national or international – can apply for a Scholarship, Award or Bursary. Winners of these prizes usually receive a rebate on College fees.
