Scholarships - school nominated


These are scholarships that require students to submit a nominated scholarship request form (attached on this page) by the posted deadline to be considered for nomination.

Scholarships noted below have an in-school Hugh Boyd deadline for students to submit the form. This provides staff time to make a decision, which in turn allows the nominated student time to gather requisite materials to make a formal submission to the scholarship. The completed form must be submitted in person to our Career Advisor, Ms. Jones.

Students interested in nominations are required to review the criteria of each scholarship carefully prior to submitting a nominated scholarship request form.  Details can be found on the link provided for each scholarship.
