Elanora SHS is committed to recognising and rewarding students. As part of this commitment we introduced a number of new scholarships for 2019 and beyond. We are extremely proud of the ESHS commitment to each student's holistic development and their pursuit of excellence.
ESHS offers full and part scholarships to new students currently in Year 6 for the Junior Academic Class of Excellence (ACE), Junior Sport Academy and The Arts (Junior Dance Academy). Scholarships are awarded to the very best students who were successful in their selective entry into the above programs. In addition to these scholarships, we also offer our award winners a full scholarship for the following year. These scholarships are presented to the recipients of the Top Academic Student in each year lever (7-11). Our Year 12 DUX recipient receives a $500 gift card and their name on the DUX Sheild.

'Under the QCE Scholarship Program, QATSIF provides two-year scholarship funding to support students commencing in Year 11. QATSIF funds successful schools which then provide scholarships to individual students. The intention of the funding is to increase Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander student retention in Years 11 and 12 rather than simply sustain existing retention rates, and funding has to be used to complement and build on existing school and community programmes and support for individual students'
