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 2025 enrolments are now closed.

How To Apply


Applications for 2025 enrolments are now closed.


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. It is a requirement for external students that an Application for Enrolment at Newcastle Grammar School must be submitted prior to applying for a scholarship. All external students are required to attend a Newcastle Grammar School Open Day.

Application Fee for external and internal students

An application fee of $150.00 is required for both external and internal NGS students. The payment is to be paid online directly to Academic Assessment Services. 

Length and Tenure of Scholarships

Scholarships are subject to an annual formal review by the School in the light of progress, performance and attitude of the holder. It should be noted, however, that holders of Scholarships could normally expect the Scholarship to continue for the remainder of their education at the School (or whatever other period for which the Scholarships have initially been offered).
