Since 2006 SGCH has supported students through our scholarship program, helping thousands to achieve their educational goals.

Strive Scholarships happen in two rounds each year, one for Kindergarten to Year 12 students, and the other for Tertiary students.

Strive Scholarships provide money for educational and extra-curricular costs based on the student’s level of study, shown in the table below. The scholarship money can be used to pay for things like school fees, stationery, computers or extra-curricular activities.
