Our scholarship OPPORTUNITIES


Academic & General Excellence Scholarships - Years 5 & 7

Scholarships for students entering Years 5 and 7 are offered on the basis of scholarship testing held in February each year for the following year. Scholarship selection testing is conducted by ACER, a well-known, independent, national research and development organisation.

Academic scholarships are awarded to the students who perform best on the examination.

General excellence scholarships are awarded to students who do well on the examination and who can demonstrate excellence in areas such as sport, music and drama. Evidence of achievement will be required from those students who are invited for general excellence interviews after the awarding of academic scholarships is completed. Scholarships are usually tenable until the completion of Year 12.

Further enquiries can be made by contacting Registrar Debra de Belle via email ddebelle@pgs.vic.edu.au or +61 3 9788 7702.

ROBERT BARR-SMITH SCHOLARSHIP - YEAR 7

The Robert Barr-Smith Foundation was established in 1915 after the death of businessman and philanthropist Robert Barr-Smith.

The Barr Smith Trust has since allocated funds to a scholarship for a 49ͼ student as part of his trust. The trust fund is explicit about how the money must be used. This annual scholarship is open to male students only from Victoria who will be entering Year 7. Applicants may not be existing students of 49ͼ and should be from a family that would otherwise not be able to afford the School’s fees.

This general excellence, means-tested scholarship is offered annually, entailing a full remission of tuition fees and associated costs, plus extras such as music lessons, excursions and electives tenable from the commencement of Year 7 through to the completion of Year 12.

Applicants are not required to sit the annual scholarship exam but may elect to do so.
