As part of St Hilda's commitment to nurturing the talents of individual students, and to align ourselves with the Queensland Government's initiative to identify and develop local athletes that can deliver glory at the 2032 Brisbane Olympics, St Hilda's School is offering a limited number of Swimming Scholarships from 2024 and beyond.

The purpose of the program is to provide talented and aspiring swimmers with the correct support and training, so they may achieve at a high level, whilst providing them with a first-class education.

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


Applicants must have the drive to succeed and appetite to achieve in the areas of academic, co-curricular and the life of the school.

The Swimming Scholarships are open to new and existing students in select years, and the successful applicants will be required to act as ambassadors for St Hilda’s School and St Hilda’s Aquatics.

It is expected that the St Hilda’s Swimming Scholarship Recipients will maintain a high level of achievement and will consistently contribute and display commitment to St Hilda’s School life.

This encompasses regular attendance at training sessions and participating in relevant events as well as consistently representing self, School and St Hilda’s Aquatics Club with honour and pride.

The Scholarship is open to Australian Citizens, Permanent Residents of Australia and International Students.
