Scholarships 2023

Where Passions Prosper

Pulteney Grammar School offers scholarships to students who demonstrate academic potential, who possess the capacity to enrich the life of the School and which will influence the greater good.

The Scholarship program enables such students to attend Pulteney regardless of the financial circumstances of their families. Generations of scholarship recipients have enhanced the intellectual and social diversity of the School, and, in all considerations, preference is given to students whose families wouldn’t otherwise be able to send their children to Pulteney.

For general enquiries, contact our Enrolments Office via enrolments@pulteney.sa.edu.au or telephone +61 8 8216 5555.

Pulteney Grammar Scholarships may only be awarded to students who are Australian citizens or permanent residents of Australia.
