Community Scholarships

Great Kids WANTED!

Glenlyon Norfolk School is proud to offer our GNS Community Scholarships, which have provided $10,000 entrance scholarships for new domestic Senior School students. These scholarships are renewable annually, provided that each recipient meet or exceed our expectations in terms of contributions to the GNS community.

The first application deadline has passed, but we are pleased to announce that a limited number of these awards as still available and that, due to interest, we have decided to extend the eligibility to new students joining us in Grade 8. To qualify, interested students must have initiated the application process by May 15, 2018.

Admissions Information Session

We are holding an Admissions Information Session for interested Grade 8 to 12 families on Tuesday, May 1 at 6 p.m. in our Music Centre on our Pemberton Woods Campus (801 Bank Street). Details about our school, the scholarship program, our academic and co-curricular program, the IB Diploma, and the application process will be presented by our Admissions Team. Current students and staff, including one of our University Guidance Advisors and our IB Diploma Coordinator, will be on hand to answer any questions you might have about being a student at GNS.

Please RSVP to if you plan to attend.

How do I apply?

Get creative! We want to receive your best proposal for why you’d make a great Community Scholar, in a format of your choosing. Make a 60-90 second video, write an essay, create a work of art or come up with another unique way to present yourself and show off your unique personality. Make sure that your submission answers:

  • Who you are, what grade you’re in and where you currently attend school;
  • What you enjoy most about school; and
  • How you’ll contribute to the GNS community.

Looking for inspiration? Here is the video submission from one of last year's Community Scholarship recipients.

Application for a Community Scholarship also requires the applicant to submit the following to the Admissions Office:

  • an application for admission indicating interest in the scholarship program (to access our online application, please submit an inquiry form and specify that you would like to access our application form);
  • copies of two report cards (the most recent year-end and most recent);
  • two letters of reference (one academic-based and one activity-based).

To apply or learn more about this exciting initiative, please contact the GNS Admissions Office at, or complete the inquiry form to the right. Good luck!
