Haileybury Foundation Scholarships

Ian W. Cox Scholarship

Ian Cox’s contribution to Haileybury was lifelong and unstinting. He was School Captain and Senior Cadet Lieutenant in 1947. Following his school days, and while conducting a busy city legal practice, he provided magnificent service to the School in a variety of roles. He acted as Minute Secretary for Council from 1953, was a member of Council from 1961-2001, and served as Chairman from 1989-1997. He also acted as Honorary Solicitor for thirty-two years. Ian was a very active member of the Old Haileyburians Association and was elected a Life Member in 1979. He served as Treasurer of the OHA 1952-68 and President from 1970-72. He worked in a voluntary capacity as an officer of cadets for twenty-seven years. He rose to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, and was Commanding Officer from 1973-1974 of a unit which at that time was regarded as one of the strongest in Australia.

The Ian W. Cox scholarship can be awarded to a Victorian student who is going into Year 9 at any of our Victorian based campuses and;

  • Has shown a strong commitment to the community in which they are associated with.
  • Has demonstrated significant contribution to social justice.
  • Whose family would not ordinarily be able to send their child to 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 recipient will have the opportunity to meet with members of the Cox family once per year.

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

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 either of our campuses and;

  • 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.
