What is the difference between a scholarship and a bursary?
The purpose of a scholarship is to attract talented students who will enhance Brisbane Grammar School’s education programs and positively contribute to the School's culture. There are three (3) types of scholarships: Academic Scholarships, Sports Scholarships and Cultural
Scholarships. Scholarships are funded by the School.
The purpose of a bursary is to provide financial support to a student whose family would not otherwise have the financial means to afford a BGS education for their son and who can positively contribute to the School. Only those students who meet the strict needs-based requirements are eligible for a bursary. Bursaries are funded by the BGS Bursary Fund.
