The Prince Albert Foundation

Widening opportunity at Wellington

The Prince Albert Foundation (PAF) Scholarship programme is at the heart of our widening opportunity work. We recognise the importance of playing our part in supporting the aspirations and ambitions of young people.

The PAF Scholarship programme was established with a clear objective of widening access by offering fully funded (110%) places to young people with talent and ambition whose families simply cannot afford the fees. Inclusivity and diversity are central themes of our educational philosophy, forming the bedrock of everything we do. Over the years, Wellington has not only inspired the young people who have come here on fully funded places, but it has also been profoundly inspired by them.

By supporting the PAF Scholarship programme, we can collectively create a more inclusive and empowering educational environment that uplifts individuals, strengthens communities and shapes a brighter future for all.
