Within the General Excellence programme are a number of named scholarships that have specific eligibility requirements.
For 2023 these are:
The Australian Regional and Rural Scholarship
This scholarship is available to new students from remote, rural and regional Australia, who otherwise would not have an opportunity to attend the School. Students entering from Year 7 onwards are eligible for this award, and a structured mentoring programme will be available to the Scholar both during the time of their attendance at the School, and beyond.
Old Geelong Grammarians Scholarship
The School awards these scholarships to new students whose parents or grandparents are alumni (Geelong Grammar, The Hermitage or Clyde schools) and wish to attend Geelong Grammar School but who could not do so without financial assistance. As part of the General Excellence programme, these scholarships are offered for students entering from Year 7 to Year 11.
