Music students of any instrumental or vocal study entering Years 7 and 10 are encouraged to apply for a St Hilda’s School Music Scholarship. The successful candidate will be expected to continue her musical tuition and studies for the duration of the scholarship and contribute to the musical life of the school.

The Scholarship provides part remission of tuition fees, for the successful recipient.


AMEB Grade 5 or higher is the minimum performance standard required.

Auditions will be held on the afternoon on Friday, 23 February 2024. For students unable to attend a face-to-face audition, a virtual audition will be made available. Current St Hilda's Students are not required to sit an audition and will be assessed by their music teacher in class.

It is expected that all Scholarship and Bursary Recipients will maintain a high level of achievement relevant to their Scholarship or Bursary and will consistently contribute and display commitment to St Hilda’s School life.

This encompasses regular attendance at training sessions/lessons and participating in relevant events as well as consistently representing self and school with honour and pride.
