Dilworth Scholarships

All Dilworth students are awarded a full boarding scholarship, including tuition, books, uniforms, sports fees, and music tuition. It is a significant scholarship, worth more than $35,000 per year.

Receiving a Dilworth scholarship can be life-changing. It can be of enduring benefit to students whose families cannot provide them with the quality education they know their boy deserves. 

The scholarship does not cover travel to and from home or any activities outside of the normal school programme.

Scholarships are awarded to students for Years 7 and above at Dilworth School.

Update: Dilworth School opens Year 7 to day students from 2023
We have made the decision to open enrolments to day students, in addition to boarding students, for Year 7 on a trial-basis from next year.

Starting in the 2023 school year, our Junior Campus will operate a composite day student and boarding Year 7. The School will remain full boarding from Year 8 onwards. 

The composite Year 7 model will increase opportunities for more students to access the benefits of a Dilworth education experience, including small class sizes, specialist teachers and extra-curricular opportunities.

Headmaster Dan Reddiex says introducing a day student option will ease the transition to a boarding environment for younger students.

Parents and caregivers will also have the option of school-provided transport, enabling students to be picked up in the morning to arrive at school for breakfast with boarding students. Students can also choose to be transported home after dinner, allowing them to partake in afterschool extracurricular activities before returning home to spend the evening with their families.

Update: Families affected by COVID-19 are now eligible for Dilworth scholarships.

To assist families affected by these challenging and unprecedented times, Dilworth’s application criteria for scholarships now includes families impacted by COVID-19.
