Year 7 Scholarships
*Year 7 Scholarships for 2018 are now closed.
Whether or not they win a scholarship, new applicants to the School for Years 7 and 11 whose academic scholarship examination results place them in the top 25% of all external scholarship applicants for their year group will be given first priority offers of places at the School (subject to satisfying the normal entry criteria and application procedures outlined in the School’s Admissions Policy).
Canberra Grammar School is pleased to offer the following Academic Scholarships for entry to Year 7 in 2018:
Year 7: CGS Foundation Scholarships
Up to four scholarships worth 20% of the tuition fee over six years are open to new or current students seeking to enter Year 7, at least two of which may be awarded to external applicants.
The School places a high value on musical talent and seeks to encourage outstanding musicians through the award of a number of prestigious music scholarships to students who, for the duration of their scholarship, would be expected to study elective music, participate in School musical groups and performances and take instrumental or vocal tuition either at the School or alternatively as approved by the Director of Music if the School is unable to provide the necessary expertise.
Year 7-9: Ann Jory Music Scholarship
The Ann Jory Music Scholarship supports organ or vocal tuition for a period of three years up to a value of $2,500 per year. Students entering Years 5 to 9 are encouraged to apply. The Ann Jory Music Scholarship will be offered again in 2017 for 2018.
Year 7: CGS Foundation Music Scholarships
One scholarship worth 20% of the tuition fee and the cost of instrumental/vocal tuition up to a value of $2,500 per year for up to six years is open to new or current students seeking to enter Year 7.
Application pre-requisite: Minimum standard of 5th Grade AMEB or equivalent.

Year 7 – The CGS Foundation Boarding Scholarship
Limited support is available to extend Scholarship fee remissions to include a portion of the residential fee for boarding. Applicants who wish to be considered for such support are asked to indicate their interest in their Music or Academic Scholarship application forms.
