Scholarships

The Scholarship program has been designed to recognise, encourage, and support talented individuals pursuing an education in the performing arts.

APGS offers a number of scholarships that provide all or part remission of tuition fees. Scholarships do not cover textbooks, uniforms, excursions, performance fees, technology fees or private tuition fees.

The following awards are offered:

  • Junior Scholarships Years 7-8
  • Junior Scholarships Years 9-10
  • Senior Scholarships Years 11-12

All scholarships are awarded for the duration of the relevant learning stage. The scholarship recipient will be subject to a biennial review of their performance in academic studies and the performing arts in order to determine their suitability to retain the scholarship. 

It is an expectation that all scholarship recipients maintain appropriate academic standards and uphold and respect the Conditions of Enrolment of the school. Scholarship recipients are expected to be actively involved in the school community, and represent the school in activities as required.

Several scholarships are awarded for each category per cohort at the discretion of the School Board. Applications for scholarships close on 31st May each year. After the completion of an audition and entrance examination, successful applicants will be contacted in the following weeks to arrange an interview.
