Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School (IGGS) is an Educational Partner of the AIEF and offers a limited number of scholarships under the AIEF Scholarship Program.
The AIEF Scholarship Program provides scholarships that enable Indigenous students in financial need to attend leading Australian schools and universities.
The program is founded on the belief that students will have the greatest chance of succeeding at school if the decision to enrol is one made by the family and the student in conjunction with the school.
The AIEF Scholarships available at Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School facilitate choice by removing the financial barriers that may prevent Indigenous students who want to pursue their education with IGGS from doing so.
AIEF Scholarship holders are expected to participate actively in all aspects of an all-round education and support others at IGGS.
Please refer to the following information regarding the AIEF Scholarship application process:
Please note, applications close Monday 16 July.
