Gabriel Boarding Scholarships

Gabriel Boarding Scholarship

Each year, Canberra Girls Grammar School (CGGS) awards a limited number of Gabriel Boarding Scholarships for families who live a distance from Canberra. This scholarship is awarded on merit and considers the contribution the student can make to the life of the Boarding House.

This bursary aims to financially assist families who would like their daughters to attend the School but may find the combined school fees and boarding costs prohibitive. Applicants entering the School in Years 7 to 11 may apply for bursary support.

The bursary is supported by The Gabriel Foundation, which strives to strengthen our community by advancing educational opportunities for our students. The School is indebted to the Foundation for its generosity and commitment to the academic development of our students.
