The Parncutt Family Scholarship

Page Content


The Parncutt Family Scholarship supports an academically talented student who, due to family financial circumstances, would otherwise not have the opportunity to attend Melbourne Grammar School.

The Scholarship was established in 2013 by Bruce Parncutt AO (OM 1968).

The Scholarship provides up to 80% remission of boarding or tuition fees. The School may be able to provide additional financial support to supplement this Scholarship.

Applications for the Parncutt Family Scholarships are currently closed. 


The Parncutt Family Scholarship is available to a prospective day or boarding student who will enter Year 7 or Year 9.

The Scholarship will be awarded to an applicant who can demonstrate a strong intellectual aptitude, leadership traits, and a breadth of involvement in their school or community beyond academic studies.

You are welcome to apply for this Scholarship even if you have not previously submitted an application to enrol at the School. You can also apply if you have previously applied for another Scholarship at the School.

This Scholarship is only available to Australian residents and holders of PR visas. It is not available to current Melbourne Grammar students.

The Scholarship is means-tested and will be offered to families who can demonstrate that they would be otherwise unable to pay Melbourne Grammar School fees. Families will need to provide evidence of their financial circumstances.
