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.
