Haileybury Foundation Scholarships

The following Haileybury Foundation Scholarships have been offered in the past:

The Haileybury Foundation 1892 Club Scholarship

Our school began with humble roots and raw determination back in 1892 – yet today it stands as Australia's largest private school and arguably one of its most forward – looking and value adding. So too did the Haileybury Foundation start off with humble roots and raw determination – but only in 2010. Already, we have achieved much and look forward to doing so much more.

The Haileybury Foundation 1892 Club Scholarship comes about from the generosity of a large variety of Haileybury community members – alumni, current and past parents and former staff. 1892 Club members are regular donors to Haileybury Foundation, contributing $500 plus on an annual basis.

A Haileybury Foundation scholarship can be awarded to a Victorian student who is going into Year 7 at our Brighton campus;

  • Has shown a high level of academic performance in his/her preparatory years.
  • Has demonstrated significant contribution to community – be it sporting, musical, dramatic or social justice.
  • Whose family is experiencing continued or sudden financial hardship and would not otherwise have been able to attend Haileybury.

The recipient will be selected on the basis of a completed application form (available on the School's website) where they will outline their past and current contribution and commitment to their community and a short interview with (jointly) a member of the Senior Executive and a member of the Foundation's Board.  The recipient must also satisfy the "equity" requirement of the Rules of the Haileybury Scholarship Fund.

The availability of the scholarship will be advertised on the School's website and elsewhere as decided by the Principal.

The recipient must be an Australian citizen, or a permanent resident of Australia within the meaning of the Australian Citizenship Act 1948.

The scholarship will go through to and include Year 12, and can be awarded as required and if funds are available.

Haileybury Parents and Friends of Castlefield (HPFC) Scholarship

The HPFC is a voluntary group of community members who have a direct link to the Castlefield campus. The group is actively involved in the life of the School and raises funds for many important functions both on and off campus. Funds raised are redirected into the School community and into supporting areas of need outside the school. The HPFC intends their scholarship contribution to continue to reflect their main goal of giving back to the Castlefield community.

William Buckland Foundation Indigenous Scholarship

The William Buckland Foundation and Haileybury are pleased to announce that two full scholarships have been provided to children of indigenous background. These commenced in January 2015 and are operational until the scholarship holders graduate from Haileybury.

Brian Clark Club Scholarship

Haileybury Foundation has provided a full scholarship for one student from 10 who undertook  to study Humanities to Year 12.  The scholarship is named after Brian Clark who taught Humanities at Haileybury for 43 years. This scholarship will be reopened in 2017.

Savulescu/Aikman Scholarships

Two full scholarships were provided for talented academic students who would not otherwise have been able to afford a Haileybury education. These scholarships were offered in 2013 and named after past student, Professor Julian Savulescu ('79), who holds the Uehiro Chair in Practical Ethics at the University of Oxford and the late Michael Aikman who was Principal at Haileybury between 1974 and 1998.

Geoffrey Patience Scholarship

One full scholarship was offered for a student entering from Year 8 in 2013 who proposed to study Science subjects through to Year 12 and who would not otherwise have been able to afford a Haileybury education.  Applicants needed to provide evidence of a strong performance in the study of Science throughout their secondary schooling.  The scholarship is named after past student, the late Dr Geoffrey Patience ('60), who was a rural GP in Benalla and was universally regarded for his contribution to the community including being the NE representative for the AMA and an examiner for both the Royal Australian College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and the Royal College of General Practitioners.
