Scholarships are offered to students based on outstanding academic achievements, or because they have met all requirements set out by the scholarship sponsor. Scholarships will cover expenses such as tuition, textbooks and uniform with the possibility of a stipend.

Scholarships do not need to be paid back, as the scholarship was obtained due to the student meeting a certain set of requirements set out by the scholarship sponsor.

Here are the scholarships available to primary and high school students:
