Performers must be aged 25 years or under, be residents of NSW, and be students of teachers who are MTA members. Two scholarships will be awarded in 2023, each to a value of $1000, one for an instrumentalist and one for a vocalist. Any performers who meet these conditions may be considered for this scholarship.
Previous winners of the Margaret Chalmers Scholarship are ineligible to enter.
