Scholarships and bursaries

Melbourne Grammar School offers a range of scholarships and bursaries which celebrate aspiration and achievement, and foster access and diversity.

Our scholarships seek to recognise the talents of very able students. Some are specifically aimed at widening access to the exceptional education available at Melbourne Grammar, irrespective of financial means or social circumstances.

Entrance Scholarships

Entrance Scholarships are available to outstanding students entering Year 7 or Year 9. These scholarships celebrate excellence and are awarded on the basis of merit.

We offer:

  • Academic scholarships
  • Music scholarships
  • Boarding scholarships

All families are invited to apply for these scholarships. They are available to students who are already attending or enrolled at the School, and to new students.

Access Scholarships

Access Scholarships are awarded to talented students who show that they can benefit from an exceptional education but whose families may not be able to meet the financial commitment associated with attending the School.

A range of Access Scholarships is available. The year level, selection procedures and timings for Access Scholarships varies across the range, as does the level of support provided.

All Access Scholarships are means tested.
