Scholarships at St Michael's

It is in the spirit of inclusivity and diversity that we welcome applications for our Scholarships Program.

The St Michael’s Grammar School’s Scholarship program seeks to provide opportunities for students who otherwise may not be able to start, or continue, their St Michael’s education.

Through our scholarships we aim to enrich the School community by attracting students who will contribute to the social and cultural diversity of the School and its overall academic and co-curricular excellence. Collectively we look to our Scholarship recipients to enhance the ethos and culture of the School.

Students who have demonstrated academic excellence, a strong aptitude for learning, or who have demonstrated strengths in one or more of a wide range of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities are encouraged to apply for a Scholarship. These include, but are not confined to, the performing arts (dance, drama, instrumental music, singing) visual arts and design, robotics, debating, social justice groups, student leadership, volunteering and sport.

All Scholarships are offered from the year of the award until completion of Year 12, subject to satisfactory academic progress. It is expected that all Scholarship recipients will maximise the opportunity by:

  • sharing the School’s values of Dignity, Respect, Care and Compassion
  • embracing the School’s culture of contributing citizenship and reciprocity
  • engaging with the diverse range of programs offered by the School
  • contributing positively to the School and broader community.

Scholarships for 2023 entry are now closed. Please check back later for 2024 Scholarship applications.
