Scholarships

Is your child a high performer?

The Illawarra Grammar School offers Academic, Music and Sport Scholarships for students entering Year 7. Our highly sought after scholarships are generally offered until Year 12, and recipients are expected to be actively involved in the life of the School.

Academic scholarship applicants must sit for the scholarship examination which is used to identify and rank high performing students.
The examination requires students to demonstrate a range of skills and abilities, but is not curriculum based and does not test retention of knowledge.

Students who are applying for a scholarship will be asked a range of questions in the areas of:

  •  Abstract reasoning and problem solving.
  •  Mathematics achievement and reasoning.
  •  Reading comprehension.
  •  Written expression.

Scholarships are open to new students applying to commence at TIGS in Year 7 2025.

Scholarship applicants must be Australian citizens or holders of an Australian Permanent Resident Visa.
