Whereas Miss Gladys Lloyd Thomas has paid to the University the sum of $1,000* for the purpose of encouraging the study of the playing of the violin, it is hereby provided that: There shall be a scholarship for violin playing to be called "The Gladys Lloyd Thomas Scholarship" which shall be tenable at the Elder Conservatorium. The annual value of the scholarship shall be $250. The scholarship shall be tenable for three years, but the Director of the Elder Conservatorium shall have power to extend the period of tenure. A candidate for the scholarship shall be a permanent Australian resident and shall have been resident in the State of South Australia for at least one year prior to the award of the scholarship. If, in the opinion of the examiners, no candidate at any examination shows sufficient merit, the scholarship shall lapse for the period of one year, after which it shall be offered again. In the event of no award being made, the Director of the Elder Conservatorium shall have power to award an exhibition equal to the value of the scholarship for one year to a student of the Conservatorium of sufficient merit in string playing. These rules may be varied from time to time but the title and general purpose of the scholarship shall not be changed. *Increased in 1973, by capitalisation of accumulated income, to $1,300.
