The Southport School offers a number of scholarships and bursaries for boys who display the potential to thrive in our educational environment and would be unable to attend TSS without fund support. Philanthropy remains a critical element to ensure the success and sustainability of programs such as, but not limited to the Indigenous, Country Boarder, OSA (Alumni) and Foundation Bursaries and Scholarships programs. It is critical that these programs continue to be supported and resourced to ensure their sustainability and growth to empower the School in fully supporting the boys (and their families) who may not otherwise be able to attend and gain the benefit of an outstanding TSS education – significantly based on the generosity of donors and bequests contributing to these education funds.
The Indigenous Education Program was launched in 2007/8 and has grown to now have over 25 Indigenous students attending the School. While some families pay full fees a large proportion are receiving support with a majority of the scholarships offered by The Southport School Foundation in addition to the partnership TSS has with organisations including Yalari Foundation and Evonne Goolagong Cawley Foundation.
Families from rural, regional and remote areas of Queensland and New South Wales have been an integral part of the unique TSS boarding community since 1901. Ensuring the continuation of this strong link between Southport and country families is a strategic priority for the school as affirmed by the School Council. Country Boarder Bursaries acknowledge the importance of these relationships by providing financial support to students from rural, regional and remote areas.
The Foundation Scholarship is offered by The Southport School Foundation and is open only to boys currently in Year 5 who are currently not attending TSS and who would be unable to attend TSS without scholarship support. This scholarship offers a remission of fees for Year 6 until the normal time of graduation in Year 12. The value of the scholarship can vary at Headmaster’s discretion depending on the calibre of the boy’s application. This scholarship is awarded to boys who are well-rounded students and able to contribute to the general life of the school. Applicants are selected for an interview based on the application and supporting documentation. The Headmaster may require family income information to assess financial need.
With a diversity of Bursary and Scholarship Funds offering a range of options, please contact Olivia Dean in the Foundation Office [email protected] if you would like to support TSS boys now and into the future.
