Diocesan offers an internal scholarship programme that invests in our current students by recognising high achievers.

Consideration for a scholarship will also be given to a limited number of students who are new to Diocesan. To be eligible applicants must demonstrate they are highly motivated students who are willing to contribute and participate fully in school life while also meeting the scholarship criteria outlined below.

Sport and Art scholarships are offered from Years 11-13 and will only be made available if there are spaces in these year levels.

Applications for 2024 scholarships are open Wednesday 18 January 2023 and close on Wednesday 15 February 2023.

How to Apply

To apply for a scholarship go to www.diocesan.school.nz and complete the school application form and pay the $250 application fee.  Beside your daughter’s surname please write ‘scholarship’.

Complete the scholarship application form which clearly states your daughter’s most recent achievements, along with a copy of her two latest school reports and email these to [email protected].  Please mark this with ‘Scholarship application 2024’ in the subject line.

Once we have received your application, we will acknowledge it so you know it is safely with us.  At this stage we may request further information from you or your daughter’s current teacher.

Following the review of all applications, selected applicants will be invited in for an interview and/or audition.

Late applications will not be considered.

Please note Diocesan School for Girls has a policy of awarding one scholarship per student, so if you are awarded a School Scholarship you are not eligible for an Innes House Trust Boarding Scholarship.
