Scholarship applications for 2023 will open in October 2021

St Michael’s Grammar School’s Scholarship program plays a critical role in ensuring diversity in our School community. Through our Scholarships, we seek to enhance the ethos and culture of St Michael’s and to provide opportunities for those students who otherwise may not be able to start, or continue, their St Michael’s education.

Students who receive a St Michael’s Scholarship have exemplary character and share the values of our School community, leading as positive role models for their peers. St Michael’s Scholarships reward student achievement in STEM, sports, music, leadership or a commitment to community service.

We encourage enquiries and applications from across the community.

We look forward to reopening Scholarship applications for 2023 entry in October 2021.
