Maritzburg College Scholarships

Maritzburg College awards a limited number of Scholarships for excellence in Academics, Culture and Sport. In all cases, the potential candidates are selected, solely at the discretion of the school, according to the following criteria:

  • Academic scholarships are awarded to a select few of the top achievers in Mathematics and English. These awards are based on the Grade 6 December report and the results of the Maritzburg College Scholarship Exam (written by invitation only).
  • Cultural scholarships are usually awarded retrospectively, based on the learner’s commitment and cultural talent evident during his Grade 8 (Form 2) year.
  • Sporting scholarships are awarded to a select few talented boys who are performing at a provincial (or higher) level. We take into account the information parents provide on the application forms, the confidential questionnaires received from the primary schools and, in particular, the recommendations of our Admissions PRO, based on his observations at primary school matches, regional trials and competitions.

Please note:

  • Every application is assessed in terms of the above criteria and parents, therefore, should not apply for scholarships at Maritzburg College.
    The School will contact parents whose sons are awarded these scholarships.
