In 2019, for the first time in the scholarship’s history, there are five winners of the Margaret Schofield Memorial Scholarship for Performance. Congratulations to John Bennett, Louis Georgiou, Noah Meletis, Charlotte Miles and Chih-Ting (Candice) Yang.

The recipients were awarded at the VCAA Top Class Music concert, held on Tuesday 19 March at the Melbourne Recital Centre. The five students studied a range of musical instruments, including piano, cello, bassoon and violin. They each received $5000 to assist them in their future performance endeavours.

The scholarships were established by the family of the late Margaret Schofield. They are available to VCE and VCE VET Music students in government schools who demonstrate commitment to pursuing a career in music performance.
