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.
