Information on Scholarships

 

One of the School's traditions is the provision of scholarships and exhibitions to students of ability and promise so that the intellectual quality and social diversity of the School are sustained. Scholarships and exhibitions are awarded annually to girls who have outstanding academic ability, who show strong leadership qualities, who demonstrate strength in services to the School and other communities and who contribute substantially to the sporting, music, cultural and social life of the School. There are also PTA scholarships and DOGA Ltd (Diocesan Old Girls' Association Limited) scholarships, among many others, sponsored by the DOGA, PTA and other patrons of the School.

The School also offers an unlimited number of bursaries to enable promising students to fully benefit from an education DGS offers, but are otherwise unable to do so as a result of family financial circumstances. Retention of a bursary requires sustained academic effort and performance on the part of the student.
