The Janine Murphy Memorial Scholarship is endowed in memory of Janine Murphy, who had a long association with the School commencing in 1989 when her daughter first entered the Junior School. Janine continued her strong involvement with the School as the representative of the Bishop-in-Council on the School Board in 2004. She was also a member of the Board's Finance Committee.

 This scholarship can provide students the opportunity of attending Canberra Girls Grammar School which may normally not be available to students due to a families limited financial capacity to send their daughter(s) to the School.
