Like every part of Fintona, scholarships are designed to help each student become their best.
The recipient of a Fintona Academic Excellence scholarship will receive a 50% discount on tuition fees only from point of entry until completion of Year 12.
All Academic Excellence scholarship applicants must complete the Edutest examination.
The recipient of a Fintona Music/Academic Excellence 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/Academic Excellence Scholarship applicants must complete the Edutest examination and the Fintona test component.
The recipient of a Fintona Music Scholarship will receive a 25% 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 Edutest examination and submit an MP4 video recording of two contrasting pieces. This may be done via dropbox, with the video link sent to [email protected]. Should you need further advice or assistance with this, please email us.
Students who select to sit for a Music scholarship (either Music/Academic Excellence or Music only), will be contacted by the School to arrange a time for their 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.
Please note that candidates who are awarded a Fintona Music Scholarship will need to make a genuine commitment to the music program at Fintona. They will be required to participate in two music ensembles on their audition instrument as determined by the Music Co-ordinator.
To be eligible to apply, candidates must be performing comfortably at the minimum AMEB or equivalent level indicated below:
|Double Bass||Grade 3|
|Alto Saxophone||Grade 4|
|French Horn||Grade 3|
Students who are currently in Year 4 or 5 may apply for a Fintona Music Scholarship if they are at a level which is 1 AMEB grade lower (only) than those listed above.
All-Rounder Scholarships are open to new students entering Years 8 to 11.
The recipient of an All-Rounder Scholarship will receive up to a 30% discount on school tuition fees from point of entry until completion of Year 12. All-Rounder Scholarship applicants must submit a Scholarship Application Form along with supporting documentation, and attend a panel interview at Fintona Girls’ School.

At Fintona, we consider All-Rounders to be students who:
- Lead with confidence and serve their community.
Students who make a difference by leading initiatives and supporting others to make the world and their community a better place.
- Strive for academic excellence.
Students who work hard to beat their personal best and achieve outstanding results in the things they put their mind to.
- Excel on the field, stage or in the arts.
Whether they’re the drama captain or footy captain, all-rounders shine where their skills and passions combine.
