Annual scholarship application process

Step one

November, 14 months prior to entry – January the year before entry

We open entrance scholarship applications for the intake 14 months ahead (i.e. scholarships advertised in November 2022 are for boys entering Year 7 and Year 9 in 2024).

Applications are open from November to the following January, through the School website. Please note, a non-refundable fee of $110 is payable to sit the exam.

Step two
Testing and shortlisting

February the year before entry

Applicants sit a scholarship examination at Melbourne Grammar School. Boys entering Year 7 sit in Year 6; boys entering Year 9 sit in Year 8.

Depending on the scholarship, we may also ask for supporting documents or other information.

Applicants are then shortlisted.

Step three
Interview and offer

February/March, the year before entry

Shortlisted applicants will be invited to an interview with the Headmaster. Successful applicants are notified very soon after the interview.

Step four
Acceptance of offer

One week after offer

To secure a scholarship, families must submit formal enrolment documentation and pay an enrolment fee within one week after the offer has been made.
