Applications for 2017 / 2018 Scholarships

Scone Grammar School’s Scholarship Programme offers a range of scholarships made possible through the generosity and support of donors. The School is very grateful to all those who have contributed to the Scholarship Programme.

Scone Grammar School offers scholarships to community-minded as well as to academically and musically talented students providing students with many opportunities to pursue excellence in their chosen fields. The broad spectrum of scholarships now available opens these opportunities to an even wider audience. We believe that the awarding of scholarships enriches the learning culture and heightens an awareness of the values that we wish to articulate to the young people in our community.

Please note: Scholarships will only be awarded to a successful applicant if there is a confirmed place available in the respective year, as some years are wait listed.
