The Mentone Grammar Scholarship Program recognises outstanding achievement. 

At Mentone Grammar we welcome applications for scholarships from students who believe they can make a positive contribution to the Mentone Grammar community. 

2019 Academic, General Excellence and Creativity Scholarships are now closed (at 5pm Friday 9 February 2018).

2020 Scholarship applications will open in October 2018.

  • Academic Scholarships (Years 5, 7, 9 and 10 in 2020)
  • General Excellence Scholarships (Years 5, 7, 9 and 10 in 2020)
  • Creativity Scholarships (Years 5, 7, 9 and 10 in 2020)

It is the School's expectation that a student who receives a scholarship will remain at Mentone Grammar until the end of Year 12. Scholarship recipients must demonstrate continued commitment to their educational priorities and progress suitably well with good effort ratings.

All students are expected to adhere to the Mentone Grammar Vision and Values namely: Respect, Caring, Resilience, Service, Discipline, Endeavour and Integrity.

Students on scholarships who leave prior to the completion of Year 12 may be asked to refund the amount of fee remission provided by Mentone Grammar.

The number of scholarships awarded and the percentage of tuition fee remission is at the discretion of the Principal. All scholarships are confidential.
