Scholarship Program

Our scholarship program provides opportunities for exceptional young women who are passionate about learning and who can positively contribute to our school and the wider community.

Scholarships are offered to students who have demonstrated distinction in one or more disciplines and can make a significant contribution in the academic, musical, artistic, cultural and/or sporting arenas of the school. A student applying for a scholarship must be willing to become a constructive and involved member of the CGGS community, participating fully in all aspects of school life.

Applications for our 2021 Scholarship Program are now closed.
