The John Emmerson Scholarship

We are pleased to offer the John Emmerson scholarship for students entering Year 2 at our Toorak Campus in 2019. We encourage students who are willing to fully participate in our academic and co-curricular offerings at the School to apply for this wonderful opportunity.

Dr John Emmerson was a student at Geelong Grammar School from 1944 to 1955, and attended both our Toorak and Corio campuses. During his time with us, Dr Emmerson was the recipient of several scholarships and prizes and continued to hold the School in high esteem. As a lasting legacy, Dr Emmerson left a bequeath to assist students who would not otherwise be able to attend Geelong Grammar School.

It is our intention that the John Emmerson scholarship will continue throughout the student’s Primary School years, and is subject to the holder being a positive contributor to the School and showing interest and enthusiasm for both the academic and co-curricular offerings.

The value of the Scholarship is up to 55% of tuition fees.

The scholarship value applies to the relevant year level tuition fee, and excludes uniform, private music lessons, text book, excursions, sundry charges or other personal items.

To be eligible for the scholarship:
- Applicants must be Australian or New Zealand citizens or holders of an Australian Permanent Resident Visa
- Candidates should demonstrate an all-round ability and be eager to participate in the wide range of opportunities available at our Toorak campus, and respect the philosophy and rules that govern the School
- Current Geelong Grammar School students are not eligible to apply for the John Emmerson Scholarship
- Note: If your child currently holds a scholarship at another school, this should be disclosed at the interview stage of the application
