The Maude Puddy Prize for Piano


In 1954, the sum of £500 was paid to the University of Adelaide by a committee of the former students of Maude Puddy, a teacher of pianoforte at the Elder Conservatorium, for the purpose of founding a scholarship in piano in her honour.


The value of the Prize will be $600 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 student of piano 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.
