University of Melbourne Scholarships

The talents of Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School students have been acknowledged by The University of Melbourne through Scholarship offerings this year, with four students receiving scholarships. Isabella Nolan and James Macaulay have both been offered Melbourne Chancellor’s Scholarships based on their overall performance in the VCE.

A Principal’s Scholarship was awarded to Anthony Baird, which acknowledges his academic achievement and contribution to the school and/or wider community. Jack Gibney received the inaugural Exceptional Talent Scholarship for students of mathematics and statistics based on his outstanding results in VCE mathematics and other mathematics competitions.

We congratulate these students on this achievement; the manner in which each of these students was able to balance their academic studies alongside the significant contribution they made to the life of the school bodes well for the challenges and opportunities university life will offer.
