We invite students entering Year 7 or Year 10 in 2023 to apply for a General Excellence Award. This Award is open to all students, including currently enrolled Ivanhoe Grammar School students.

General Excellence Awards acknowledge high academic potential, demonstrated leadership skills, citizenship qualities, community service experience and a particular talent in one or more of the following areas: music, sport, visual arts or performing arts.

General Excellence Awards offer a reduction of up to 50% of the tuition fees, for the duration of the student’s secondary education. All other fees and charges are payable in full.

Applications will close on Friday 25 March 2022 at 5pm.  Late applications will not be accepted.

Once applications close, students may be invited to the School for an interview. The School will be in contact to arrange the interview time.

A non-refundable registration fee of $120 is payable at the time of application and is completed as part of the online application.
