Donations have helped the School develop many of its outstanding learning facilities and provide life-changing bursaries for boys in financial need.
The School relies on the collective generosity and long-term support of its community to nurture future generations of BGS boys. Today we invite you to continue this proud
philanthropic tradition and donate to our 2017 Annual Appeal for bursaries and scholarships.
History of Bursarial Support
When established in 1868 under
The Grammar Schools Act (passed in Queensland Parliament in 1860) Brisbane Grammar School's specific legislative intent was to be a place of learning open to all. Since 1869, the School has a long tradition of providing scholarship and financial aid to facilitate access to a BGS education. This tradition of providing financial aid to well-rounded students whose families could not otherwise afford a BGS education continues today.
In addition to an interview with the Headmaster, or his nominated delegates, the School has set criteria for needs-based bursaries.
The School expects bursary holders to maintain high academic standards, as well as contribute to the wider life of the School.
Upon offer, the following documentation is required to finalise the bursary:
Our Plan to Grow Bursarial Support
The Board of Trustees has established a goal to increase the School's Endowment Scholarship Fund from the current level of $6M to $20M by 2020. Achieving this goal will provide sustainable income to expand fee-assisted access for current and future generations.
How You Can Make an Impact
All individual donations to the Annual Appeal, regardless of size, will make a vital contribution to provide more boys with a life-changing opportunity to attend the School.
