How to apply

You'll need to submit a few documents to support your application, so have a good read-through and work on your application over the school holidays.

If you already have a scholarship, that shouldn’t stop you applying. The only time it’s likely to affect your eligibility for FMG’s scholarship is if the other scholarship pays most of your tuition fees.

Applications open 2 September and close on 1 November. Check back on this page for the application form during this period.
