The generosity of our community allows talented young people a chance to realize their full potential.
Alumni and esteemed colleagues connect with us and share their time, skills and wisdom to enhance the development of the St Hilda’s community. We benefit from extensive networks of people who deliver insightful presentations, mentor our students or offer industry internships to develop career pathways.
Scholarships are the lifeblood of any educational institution, providing valued opportunities to transform lives and spur students to greater achievement. There are different ways to to establish a scholarship at St Hilda’s College, which can be tailored to your interests and circumstances.
The College actively engages with our community to explore new opportunities for students. All gifts large or small are welcome to the College scholarship fund anytime.
Fully expended scholarship
A sum is donated annually and fully expended during the year of the gift. A minimum of $5,000 would support a student who requires financial assistance.
The minimum amount required to establish an endowment is $50,000. This is based on a calculation, over long term, income generated from capital investment will be used to fund the purpose.
