Indigenous bursaries

Indigenous Bursaries support Indigenous students’ achievements and help create a shared future.

By supporting our Indigenous Bursaries Programme, you will help more Indigenous Australians discover new strengths through exceptional educational opportunities. Your gift will encourage Indigenous students to re-shape their thinking about future possibilities and to consider new horizons.

We want all Melbourne Grammar students to value and respect Indigenous culture. To achieve this, we have built rich learning opportunities and programmes to enable genuine understanding. Our Indigenous students often play a key role in increasing this cultural understanding and in the development of strong cultural bonds among all students.

Melbourne Grammar School is committed to raising $7.5m from philanthropic support to ensure 15 Indigenous students can attend the School in any given year. Thanks to donor support, and our partnership with the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation, more than $1.6m of this total has already been raised.

Each bursary provides most of the financial assistance needed to cover tuition, boarding and selected incidental fees. Thirty-two Indigenous students have already benefited from the Indigenous Programme, with 24 already completing their VCE.
