  • Correct use of scholarship funds

    Many non-government schools have asked if they can use DGR-endorsed scholarship funds to provide fee relief to enrolled students during COVID-19.

    DGR-endorsed scholarship funds can only be used to award scholarships for reasons of merit or equity and must be open to individuals within a region of at least 200,000 people.

    You cannot use a scholarship fund to provide fee relief to families who are unable to pay their school fees, even if only for a limited period.

    Scholarships can only be awarded in a way that is consistent with tax law and the governing document of your fund.
