Scholarships and Bursaries

Canberra Girls Grammar School (CGGS) has a long and proud tradition of offering scholarships to girls. Our scholarship program aims to recognise students who will make a strong and positive contribution to the life of the School and who harness the essence of our motto, to the young, anything is possible.

The application period for our 2019 scholarship program is now closed.

2020 Scholarship program

Our 2020 scholarship program will be launched later this year. Please register your interest online for the 2020 Scholarship program.

Scholarships are open for eligible applicants commencing in Years 5 to 11, who are permanent Australian Residents or hold Australian Citizenship.

As an example of our scholarship program, in 2019 we offered the following:

  • Gabriel Academic Scholarship
  • Gabriel Boarding Scholarship
  • Vivien Gough Memorial Performing Arts Scholarship (Dance and Drama)
  • Vivien Gough Memorial Music Scholarship
  • Claringbould Vocal Scholarship
  • Organ Scholarship
  • Janine Murphy Memorial Scholarship
  • Indigenous Day Student Scholarship


As a non-selective school with an inclusive approach, we pride ourselves on providing the finest educational opportunities for all our students.

Thanks to the support of The Gabriel Foundation, we have a range of bursaries which can support our scholarship program. The Foundation aims to strengthen our community by advancing educational prospects for all regardless of their circumstances. The School greatly appreciates the Foundation for its continued generosity and commitment to providing academic opportunities.

Bursaries are available to all our scholarship holders where there is a need. Bursaries are awarded on a sliding scale according to the families need, based on an assessment of a family's financial circumstances. Funding is subject to repeat means testing each year.
