The Geelong community has produced a large number of talented artists over the years, many of which have proceeded to international stardom. In recognition of the need to make opportunities available for aspiring musicians The Geelong Advertiser has demonstrated exemplary community spirit in establishing this scholarship. Your support will provide a permanent record of achievement for the scholarship winners, Geelong and its wider community, and most of all for its sponsors. Most importantly, contribution to the Scholarship Fund will promote your commitment to the Arts, as a world class group of candidates assembles to perform for many audiences to enjoy.

 

By providing financial support, donors and sponsors will derive great personal satisfaction, as well as demonstrate a strong spirit of corporate citizenship in the knowledge that:

 

  • You are promoting excellence in the arts

  • Donors and sponsors are maximising the opportunities for young, talented Australians in their chosen field

  • Your financial support  enables potentially world class musicians to perform for the enjoyment of the community.
