The Jewel Stevens Scholarship

In 1978, Ernest William Stevens donated the sum of $6,000 to the University of Adelaide for the purpose of providing, in memory of his late wife Jewel Stevens, a scholarship tenable at the Elder Conservatorium.

The following rules are hereby made:

  1. The scholarship shall be known as “The Jewel Stevens Scholarship”.
  2. The scholarship shall be offered to a student of piano as a principal course (Single Study) in the Elder Conservatorium, or failing a suitable applicant in piano, a student of the violin.
  3. The annual value of the scholarship is $2,500 or such other sum as determined by the Director of the Elder Conservatorium but such sum shall not exceed the annual interest earned on the capital sum.
  4. The scholarship shall be available each year and shall be tenable for one year.  No candidate may hold the scholarship for more than three years.
  5. The scholarship shall be awarded on the recommendation of the Director of the Elder Conservatorium.
  6. If, in the opinion of the Director of the Elder Conservatorium, there is no candidate of sufficient merit, the scholarship shall lapse for that year.
  7. The scholarship shall be administered by the Elder Conservatorium of Music.
  8. The scholarship must be taken up in the year in which it is offered; acceptance of the scholarship offer cannot be deferred. If a student declines the scholarship offer, the scholarship will be offered to the next eligible student.
  9. The scholarship will be terminated where:
    1. a student  ceases to be enrolled in the approved program of study at the University;
    2. a student has provided false or misleading information with regard to their personal details;
    3. a student has failed to maintain satisfactory academic progress for two consecutive semesters;
