Applications for 2024 Scholarships

Scone Grammar School 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 our Scholarship Programme. We believe that awarding scholarships enriches the learning culture and reinforces important values to students within our community.

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

There are four categories of scholarships being offered which are outlined below.

Category 1: Academic

Academic Scholarships are available for students entering Years 5, 7, 9 and 11 each year. The School uses the Primary Scholarship Programme and the Co-operative Scholarship Programme set up by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) for Years 5, 7, 9 and 11 that is used in most independent schools across Australia.

The Sir David Martin Scholarship is awarded to a Year 7 student of exceptional academic ability.  This is based on the ACER examination results. Candidates must sit the ACER examination. Students currently enrolled at Scone Grammar School are eligible to apply.
