125th Anniversary Scholarships

The Melbourne Girls Grammar community is pleased to offer 125th Anniversary Scholarships

applications are now open for 125th Anniversary Scholarships

The gift of education is one of the most powerful opportunities we can provide.

In 2018, we promoted this idea to the School Community who have united around this cause ever since. With a focus on acting together to support those less fortunate resulted in a number of scholarships being awarded annually.

The 125th Anniversary Scholarship provides girls, irrespective of their family’s means or circumstances, access to  quality education that celebrates the strength of girls from all age groups and instils the confidence to pursue interests, passions and opportunities.  In 2020, our first recipients will enter through our red brick facade to participate in the innovative curriculum that awaits. Each will embark on her personal journey, discover her talents and be challenged, and ultimately achieve her full potential. Diversity is celebrated at Melbourne Girls Grammar and underpinning our educational philosophy is that each girl has the potential to define  who she is; from where she draws her strength, and understands want binds us together as a community.
