Fintona Girls' School is proud to offer Academic and Music scholarships to existing and new students, with outstanding ability, for entry in 2019. A Fintona Scholarship is highly valued and is an important avenue for ensuring that as many girls as possible have an opportunity to receive a first class education. The scholarship examination is conducted in part by Edutest Pty. Ltd. and an additional component is set and administered by Fintona.

All scholarships are awarded on the basis of the results of the Edutest and Fintona assigned examinations, previous school reports, student questionnaire and an interview with the Principal.

After registering, you will be contacted via email to acknowledge your registration and further information will then be requested.


What Scholarships do you offer?

The following scholarships will be offered in 2018:

Academic Scholarships
Fintona Academic Scholarships are open to students entering Years 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 in 2019.

Music Scholarships

Fintona Music Scholarships are open to students entering Years 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 in 2019.

The recipient of a Fintona Music Scholarship will receive a 50% discount on school tuition fees from point of entry until completion of Year 12 and a weekly instrumental music lesson (term time only) with a member of the Music Department.

All Music Scholarship applicants must complete the academic examinations as well as a Music specific theory examination.

If the applicant progresses to the next round, they will then be invited to audition (not all candidates may be offered the chance to audition). The music auditions will be conducted at Fintona. Applicants will be contacted by the Music Co-ordinator to arrange an audition time.

All candidates, who are asked to audition, should prepare two contrasting pieces and will be tested on sight reading and aural exercises appropriate for their instrument and level. Candidates should arrange for their own accompanist, if they require one.
