The George Boland Scholarship
The George Boland Scholarship was established by his widow, Josephine Patricia Boland, to commemorate the name of her husband George.
George and Patricia Boland were lovers of opera and in particular the Swedish tenor, Jussi Bjorling. The George Boland Scholarship is intended to foster the development of classically trained singers graduating from the Elder Conservatorium of Music for up to two years of postgraduate study.
Two scholarships will be awarded annually, one to a male student and one to a female student undertaking postgraduate studies in the area of classical voice.
The total value of each scholarship shall be $10,000 paid direct to the student in one lump sum following confirmation of enrolment in postgraduate studies at the Elder Conservatorium of Music in Semester One (31 March each year).
The scholarships are tenable for one year.
