Information for Schools

Every year the Ramsay Centre funds up to 90 scholarships for recent school leavers to undertake western civilisation programs, as part of single or double degrees, at three Australian universities: the University of Wollongong, the University of Queensland, and the Australian Catholic University.

These are among the most prestigious and generous undergraduate scholarships offered anywhere in Australia.

Schools can help their high-achieving students learn more about the scholarships by pointing them to our website, and by encouraging them to attend the Ramsay Lectures and the Ramsay Summer Program. Our Summer Program is open to high school students in their final two years of study with an interest in the humanities and is fantastic preparation for the HSC.

We also welcome inquiries from schools wishing to invite the Centre, or our partner universities, to talk to groups of interested students and teachers about the Ramsay Scholarships and related degree programs. In addition, from time to time we host school groups at the Centre for information events. If you’d like to attend such an event, please let us know.
