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 and thrive in the future.

Every year, Newcastle Grammar School offers the opportunity for outstanding young students to apply for a Scholarship. As part of the Scholarship Programme, the School hopes to be able to offer a student who may not otherwise be able to attend Newcastle Grammar School 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 are listed above.

Applications for 2022 enrolments are now closed. Applications for 2023 enrolments to be announced.
