Scholarships are awards of financial support based on a child demonstrating excellence or particular potential in a certain field of academic study or performance.

Depending on the type of scholarship or award given, there is a percentage reduction in the overall fees.The amount awarded for these school scholarships (up to a maximum of 10% of fees) depends on the calibre of the candidate and is based on the performance in an examination and/or assessment. Academic, music and art scholarships are available at Glenalmond, as well as piping awards, outstanding talent awards (for sport) and all-rounder awards for those showing particular aptitude in more than one area including sport.

Glenalmond provides a range of college scholarship examinations to ensure that we attract the best quality pupils from all backgrounds. Scholarship pupils are thought of highly within the school.

Further details on College Scholarships and financial support can be found in our Guide to Financial Assistance, Scholarships and Awards 2018-19

There is more information about the support we provide for our most academically gifted pupils on the Scholars and Exhibitioners page and our booklet.
