Scholarship Programs

Branksome supports students through a program of entrance merit scholarships and financial assistance (bursaries). Our philosophy is to support, in part, as many families as possible as they look to finance their Branksome experience from Grades 7 to 12.

Fully-Funded Day Student Scholarship

The Hallward Scholarship provides full tuition for an exceptionally promising new student entering Grade 9 in Branksome Hall's day program who would not otherwise have the means to attend the school. This scholarship is available to any Canadian or Permanent Resident. 

The scholarship covers tuition, registration and IB fees and also assists with the purchase of textbooks, uniform, activity fees and the school laptop.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGMENT
We wish to acknowledge this land on which Branksome operates. For thousands of years, it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work and go to school on this land.

Setting the new standard for girls' education everywhere takes collective action. From all of us.
