Scholarships and bursaries

Our range of scholarships and bursaries celebrate aspiration and achievement, and foster access and diversity. We know the tangible difference that this kind of support can make to a student’s future.

Our scholarships seek to recognise the talents of very able students. Bursaries provide opportunities for students who may not otherwise be able to join us.

Entrance scholarships are available to students starting in Year 7 and Year 9. These include Academic, Music and Boarding scholarships. These scholarships are available to both current and new Melbourne Grammar School students.

We also offer dedicated bursary places for Indigenous students.

Once at the School, there are also many internal scholarships, bursaries, prizes and awards that recognise specific achievement or need.

Applying for a scholarship or bursary

Applications for Academic and Music scholarships normally close in January one year ahead of commencement. There is some flexibility with application dates for Boarding scholarships and Indigenous bursaries.

Applications for 2019 Academic and Music scholarships have now closed (with 2019 being the year the student would enter Year 7 or Year 9). Applications for 2020 scholarships will open in October 2018.
