About the Scholarship

These scholarships have been endowed in memory of Janine Murphy, who had a long association with Canberra Girls Grammar School commencing in 1989 when her daughter first entered the Junior School. Her son also attended CGGS from Prep to Year 2. Janine was initially involved with the annual P&F Fete and held positions on the P&F Association's Committee. After her children left school, Janine continued her strong involvement and was appointed a representative of the Bishop-in-Council on the School Board in 2004. She was also a member of the Board's Finance Committee. Janine was a person who balanced family, career and service to her community. 


The Scholarships provides up to 75 per cent remission of tuition fees for a student to study at the School. This is calculated on a sliding scale depending on the family's financial circumstances.


The scholarships are open to students in Years 7 to 11 in 2018 and are offered to students whose family may have financial difficulty in sending their daughter to CGGS.

The scholarships are awarded on the basis of:

  • financial need
  • examination
  • achievements and academic record
  • school reports
  • interview with the Principal.

Scholarships are only open to permanent residents or those who have Australian citizenship.
