Saili High School Scholarship

Most high school scholarship organisations, including SAILI,  select in Gr 6 or 7 to commence in Gr 8.   We do this to ensure that high school education starts off well.  From time to time I get phone calls and emails asking about high school scholarship opportunities for kids who are already at high school.  For a list of scholarship opportunities for Gr 6s transitioning to high school, click here.  SAILI does not provide scholarships mid high school but there are a few options out there.  Here is all of what I know.
