The Principal's Scholarship for Year 10, 2021
The Principal of MLC School, Ms Lisa Moloney has introduced a new scholarship for girls entering Year 10, 2021, who would not otherwise be able to attend the School.
The Principal’s Scholarship is open to new applicants only and covers up to full remission of tuition fees for the three years the student attends the School. It is open to girls who will flourish in the MLC School environment; who will embrace the wide-ranging opportunities on offer at the School, both academically and in co-curricular endeavours; who will support the ethos of the Uniting Church, and most importantly, who dare to be more.
As part of the application process, girls will sit an examination and parents will need to provide a supporting statement and financial documentation. To apply for consideration, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
This Scholarship is open to Australian residents only.

Through the generosity of our Old Girls and the broader school community, MLC School is able to offer a small number of means-tested scholarships to indigenous girls, entering either the Junior School or Year 7. These provide partial or full funding for the length of enrolment to cover tuition fees and some costs associated with attending the School.
All applicants for the Indigenous Scholarship program should submit a general enrolment application by 30 January in the year prior to the proposed entry for their daughter.
Applicants for Year 7 are asked to apply for and sit the scholarship exam in February prior to their proposed entry year.
All applicants will be considered and those short-listed will be interviewed during the course of the year prior to entry. Student enthusiasm and family support for the opportunity to attend MLC School are relevant factors in determining suitable recipients.
Our hope is to be able to offer more opportunities to assist girls through this scholarship program as we grow the level of philanthropic support available.
