What are scholarships?
Scholarships are the highest awards offered by Stonyhurst and are granted at the discretion of the Headmaster. The amount of scholarship awarded is also decided by the Headmaster. Scholarships at Stonyhurst College and Stonyhurst St Mary’s Hall provide an enriched pathway within the pupils relevant disciplines and only carry a small amount of fee remission. Should further financial support be required please refer to our bursary application process which can be found here.
The tenure of a scholarship is intended to be for the duration of the holder’s education at Stonyhurst, provided that the holder’s academic progress and general conduct remain satisfactory and that the holder continues enthusiastically to fulfil the obligations associated with the scholarship, evidenced in an annual review of progress and contribution. All external scholarship candidates need to have registered for a place at Stonyhurst before applying. Register for a place here.
The selection of internal candidates to sit for scholarship examinations is made only on the recommendation of relevant Stonyhurst teaching staff.
The bestowal of a scholarship at Stonyhurst carries with it privilege and responsibility.
Ian Murphy, Headmaster - Stonyhurst St Mary's Hall
