The Friends' School

Scholarships

The Friends’ School offers scholarships and fee assistance based on a number of criteria including areas of talent and personal circumstances. We welcome applications from students who believe they can make a positive contribution to our School community. The number of Scholarships awarded each year is dependent upon the quality of the applicants and the availability of places.

Community philanthropy has been integral to The Friends’ School and its core values since the school was founded in 1887. This community philanthropy and generosity continues to this day. Scholarships and fee assistance packages are funded by generous donations from the School community.

If you have any questions about the process for obtaining a scholarship or fee assistance package, please contact the Enrolments Manager, Jen Scharkie, on either

+61 3 6210 2286 or enrol.office@friends.tas.edu.au.
