The PLC Sydney Ex-Students’ Union offers a two-year partial scholarship to the value of $5000 per annum, deducted from the tuition fees, for a girl entering Year 11 at PLC Sydney.

The scholarship will be awarded to a girl with an ex-student family connection (e.g. daughter, granddaughter or niece of an ex-student and not a sibling or cousin), who shows a high level of personal development and confidence in all areas of school life, including contribution to the school. The criteria to be considered equally, after school contribution and ex-student family connection are:

  • Music/cultural involvement
  • Sporting involvement
  • Academic achievement and effort

Criteria for Selection

When considering a girl for this scholarship, her application will be considered in the following order. The student:

  1. Is entering Year 11 at PLC Sydney either as a continuing student or a new student to the College. The scholarship is tenable for 2 years only.
  2. Must have an ex-student family connection. Preference will be given to students whose mother, grandmother or Aunt attended the College.
  3. Shows a high level of contribution and commitment to the school
  4. Needs to demonstrate that she has been involved and committed in one or more of the following areas:
  • The Arts

NB: If there are no applicants deemed to meet the above criteria, the Ex-Students’ Union reserves the right not to award a scholarship that year. 

All applicants meeting the ex-student family connection criteria will be interviewed by members of the scholarship selection panel in Term 3. The scholarship selection panel comprises members of the PLC Sydney Ex-Students’ Union Committee who work in consultation with the Principal.
