Please read all the information below about applying.

The Rockhampton Grammar School offers needs-based bursaries to girls and boys (in Years 7 through 12) who would greatly benefit from an education at The Rockhampton Grammar School, but who without financial assistance would be otherwise unable to attend.

Bursaries are offered to a limited number of students (in Years 7 through 12) who are making good academic progress and who are willing to become constructive and involved members of The Rockhampton Grammar School Community, participating fully in all aspects of school life.

A Bursary may cover all or part of tuition and/or boarding fees (in Years 7 through 12). Each Bursary is subject to annual review of the student’s all-round performance and active involvement in school life, and the family’s ongoing financial position. Bursary applications are made directly to the Headmaster and are assessed by a committee consisting of the Headmaster, Board Secretary and a Member of the Board of Trustees.

Years 7 through 12 Bursary Conditions

  • In all awards the Headmaster reserves the right to offer whole or part Bursaries, or to award no Bursaries at all.
  • Bursaries are subject to annual review on the basis of the student’s performance in all areas of school life over the year. Normally, Bursaries will continue to apply for the stated duration of the bursary.
  • A Bursary is provided for either full or part remission of tuition and/or boarding fees for the duration of the Bursary.
  • A Bursary does not provide for payment in purchase of books, materials, uniforms or other day to day standard items of school requirements or activities.
  • Bursaries are not transferrable and apply only to the recipient’s education.
  • A current student of The Rockhampton Grammar School cannot apply for a Bursary, except on a demonstrated “needs” basis due to a significant change in circumstances.
  • Decisions communicated by the Headmaster are final. No correspondence will be accepted or entered into.
