GRADE 8 BENCHMARK TEST

EPWORTH FELLOWSHIP AWARDS

ONLY AWARDED TO PUPILS ENTERING GRADE 8

Epworth awards a limited number of major and minor fellowship awards to pupils entering at the Grade 8 level. These are based on financial need as well as excellence in one or more areas such as academics, sport, performing arts. They are tenable for five years.

Once you have submitted an online application form, you will receive an email message with a link to the fellowship application form, should you wish to apply for a fellowship award.

Epworth prefers to award fellowships to a number of applicants rather than to just a few applicants. This means that fellowships that will never cover 100% of the tuition and/or boarding costs and therefore, if you cannot afford at least 40% of the tuition and/or boarding fees, we will, unfortunately, not be able to assist you.
