Scholarship applications 

We award scholarships for excellence in the fields of academics, culture, and sport in both our Boys' College and our Girls' College. There is a specific online application form for each type of scholarship and each involves an assessment and/or audition. The scholarship process for Grade 8 2021 is complete, please see the below links for St Stithians College's scholarship applications for 2022.

St Stithians Girls' College 2022

The Girls’ College scholarship applications closed on 15 February 2021. The recipients will be notified on 17 March, as per the agreement between the ISASA girls' schools in the Johannesburg region.

St Stithians Boys' College 2022

Scholarships at St Stithians Boys' College are awarded based on merit and each year we invite all interested persons to apply, to be considered, as part of the Grade 8 2022 application process. Please note that we do not offer an all-rounder scholarship, but you can qualify for a scholarship in more than one of our three pillars. These individual scholarships can then be added together to increase the overall percentage offered. While the sports scholarship applications have been open for some time now, and the academic and music applications opened at the end of 2020, I am aware that you may not have had a chance to explore these options. 

Please note that due to COVID-19 and the unprecedented impact it had on all our lives over 2020 we are aware that many certificates or other documents might not be readily available. As such, where needed please request a letter of reference from a teacher, coach or head of school instead of having to submit certificates as proof of achievement.

Please follow the following links to submit the relevant application.
