The Marjorie Garner Orchestral Scholarship for Trombone
In that Mr Herbert Garner has donated in 1990 the sum of $8,500 for the purposes of endowing a scholarship for a single study student in the Elder Conservatorium, in memory of his late wife, a scholarship for full fees for the study of trombone (classical or jazz) as a principal Single Study shall be offered annually, or as income from the capital sum allows.
The following rules shall apply:
- The scholarship shall be tenable in each instance for one year, and shall then be re-offered in competition. The holder may re-apply for the scholarship for a second year. The scholarship may be awarded to the same candidate for a maximum of 3 years.
- The scholarship shall be awarded to the candidate who receives the highest score for trombone in his/her audition for entry into the single studies programme in each year.
- If there is no candidate, or no candidate judged to be of sufficient merit in single studies, the scholarship may be awarded to a second or third year performance degree student in trombone with the highest examination result at his / her final examination.
- The scholarship will be awarded subject to the recipient agreeing to join the Elder Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra and / or the University of Adelaide Wind Ensemble or Brass Ensemble, as requested by the Director of the Elder Conservatorium, in the year in which the scholarship is held.
- The scholarship shall entitle the holder to free tuition in Trombone and in such other courses as may be approved by the Director of the Elder Conservatorium. If the recipient is a degree student, the candidate shall receive the equivalent sum of one year's single study tuition to be applied to such items associated with the student's study as the Director of the Elder Conservatorium might approve.
