Open to external students for entry into Year 9 in 2023, this scholarship will be awarded in March 2022.  The Roza & Ezra Polak Scholarship will potentially provide a life-changing opportunity for the successful recipient. The founders of this scholarship passionately believe that “Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself” (John Dewey). This scholarship was established to provide a student who will otherwise not afford a King David Education. Shortlisted applicants will also be required to provide personal financial details in order for the School to conduct a confidential financial means-test to establish that there is genuine financial need.

The Roza & Ezra Polak Scholarship uniquely offers the scholarship recipient mentorship by a representative of the Leibovich Family Foundation.
