Herschel Bursary Fund

The Herschel Bursary Fund offers financial support to young students entering high school who have the talent, academic potential and character to benefit from all that Herschel offers. The pandemic has highlighted inequity in education. We recognize our need to act in a socially responsible manner and to seek ways of increasing access to excellent education for young women.

Over 120 students have moved through the bursary system at Herschel and there are currently 35 Senior School students assisted either in part, or completely by the Bursary Fund.

Our annual fundraiser aims to ensure the sustainability of this fund so that Herschel can continue to offer a relevant and dynamic education to as wide a community as possible. All money raised on the night goes directly to the Bursary Fund. Monetary donations are eligible for Section 18A tax certificates.

Please join us in our efforts to offer top-quality educational opportunities to even more students from diverse backgrounds.
