Flywire's payment experience


Every year we award a number of Scholarships to recognise current talent and potential in a wide variety of fields. In addition to a financial award, our Scholars receive enhanced educational opportunities and privileges to help them develop their talents.

Financial awards

However, we do award a finite number of higher scholarships for truly exceptional candidates, which will be awarded solely at our discretion.

We may be able to supplement a scholarship with further financial assistance based on your family’s needs – please see our Bursaries page and our Remissions Policy for details.

Review process

All Academic Scholars will receive a formal review of their progress and performance in November of Year 8 and November of Year 11.
