Lilian Forsyth Scholarship for Church Music: The purpose of this scholarship is to foster excellence in the music of Christian worship.

This will include organists, choir directors, composers, and other musicians. It is preferable that such candidates should have completed their basic musical training. References must be submitted in all cases.
