The Paul Howard Martin Prize


In 1985 Kathleen Rhonda Smith, who served the University of Adelaide in a secretarial position from 1958 to 1984, bequeathed a pecuniary legacy of $3,000 to the University for the purpose of establishing a scholarship to perpetuate the memory of her late son Paul Howard Martin.


The value of the Prize will be $400 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 organ or another classical keyboard instrument (with preference given to organ) 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 the purpose of the prize shall not be changed.
