Caulfield Grammar School Foundation Humanitarian scholarship students

For those who demonstrate sound academic ability and achievements, and show a desire to contribute to the Caulfield Grammar School community.

The Caulfield Grammar School Foundation is proud to support Scholarships for students of refugee background for entry into our School at Year 7 and Years 9 – 10 at either Caulfield Campus or Wheelers Hill Campus. These Scholarships are awarded, utilising needs based criteria, to provide opportunities for those who would otherwise be unable to access a Caulfield Grammar School education. While we work closely with Language schools in Melbourne to identify students who would thrive in our School environment and have the strong support of their family, we welcome applications from students of refugee backgrounds.

Applicants should demonstrate sound academic ability and commitment to their academic programs, achievement in several fields of endeavour, including leadership, and show a desire to contribute to the Caulfield Grammar School community.
