Toowoomba Grammar School offers a range of scholarships and bursaries

Special Ability Bursaries

Special Ability Bursaries are for boys entering the School in any year level from Year 7 through to Year 11. These bursaries may be awarded to boys who possess special co-curricular (e.g. art, music, drama or sporting) talents and they may also be offered to boys who demonstrate all-round talent across a number of fields. They may be awarded based on a boy’s achievements and his perceived potential, however, the applicant needs to have reached a high standard of achievement to be eligible.

How to apply for a Special Ability Bursary:

  • Complete the Special Ability Bursary application form;
  • Parents should write a letter of application addressed to the Director of Advancement and include:
    • a copy of their son’s latest school report;
    • a résumé outlining their son’s abilities and achievements; and
    • include copies of any awards, references, certificates, etc. that may be relevant.

Applications for Special Ability Bursaries can be made throughout the year.
