A child's future is shaped by their experiences today. School is a pathway that determines what they do, where they go and how they get there. A Newcastle Grammar School Scholarship can provide your child with an opportunity to further develop their education and talents.
Every year, Newcastle Grammar School offers the opportunity for outstanding young students to apply for a Scholarship. As part of the Assisted Places Program, the School hopes to be able to offer a student who may not otherwise be able to attend Newcastle Grammar School and the opportunity to be part of our School community.
Scholarships take the form of part remission of tuition fees and are only available to Australian citizens and permanent residents. Scholarships offered by Newcastle Grammar School for 2019 enrolment are listed below.
A Newcastle Grammar School Scholarship can give your child the opportunity to discover their true potential.
Assisted Places come in the form of part remission of tuition fees. The value of each Assisted Place may vary. Assisted Places may range in value from 25% to 50% of tuition fees. In some instances, an Assisted Place of lesser value may be offered.
For students who apply for a General Excellence, the value of this award is at the discretion of the Head of School and may require a family financial background check for short listed candidates.
Registration will open in November 2017 and closes Monday, 26 March 2018. Applications after this date will attract a late fee.
Applications are invited from internal students and students not currently enrolled at Newcastle Grammar School. Every student regardless of the Scholarship they are applying for must sit the Academic Scholarship Examination. Students currently on a scholarship at Newcastle Grammar School may not reapply.
