Boarding Scholarship

Boarding at Pymble Ladies' College

Available each year for Year 7 entry

Pymble Ladies’ College offers the equivalent of one scholarship providing full or part remission from academic tuition fees (excluding boarding fees and extras) to a boarding student entering Year 7. The awarding of an Alanda Clark, Jane Gay and Prudence Papworth Boarding Scholarship is determined by results in the scholarship examination and successful interview. The successful candidate must exhibit a willingness and ability to enter fully into the life of the College and to participate in sporting and extra-curricular activities as well as she is able.

All candidates must sit the Academic Assessment Services (AAS) examination on Saturday 14 October 2017 (for 2019 Scholarships). The scholarship examination will be held at the College or remotely (for country candidates and, in some cases, for overseas candidates).

All applications for scholarship testing must be made online through AAS. Candidates must apply first for the AAS Academic Scholarship examination.
