The Bursary Fund

At the heart of The Glasgow Academy ethos is the belief that the ablest children should be admitted to the school, not simply those who can afford to pay.  The Bursary Fund helps that philosophy become a reality.

A bursary is financial assistance for families who otherwise could not afford to pay full fees.

Bursaries ensure access to the best educational opportunities in the West of Scotland is possible and also allow support for existing Academy families who face unexpected financial hardship.

We are seeking to provide more support to talented children from low income families and grow the Bursary endowment fund, so we can secure and expand help with fees into the future.

By making a gift to the Bursary Fund at The Academy, you can transform the life of a bright child from a low income family, giving them the chance of a Glasgow Academy education.
