The Lienau Prize
In 1958 Christian Hans Augustus bequeathed a pecuniary legacy of £500 to the University of Adelaide for the establishment of a scholarship for the tenor voice at the Elder Conservatorium to be known as “The Lienau Scholarship”.
The value of the Prize will be $500 per year, or such other amount as the Director of the Elder Conservatorium shall from time to time determine but such amount shall not exceed the income from the invested funds each year.
Eligibility & Selection of Candidate
The prize will be awarded on the recommendation of the Director of the Elder Conservatorium to a tenor at the Elder Conservatorium.
If there is no candidate of sufficient merit in a given year then the prize shall lapse for that year.
If there is more than one candidate of sufficient merit, then the prize shall be shared equally.
These rules may be varied from time to time but the title and general purpose of the prize shall not be changed.
