Newhaven College offers scholarships to students who demonstrate exceptional aptitude in academic or music abilities.


Year 10 to 12 students in 2023

This scholarship has been established through a generous donation made by Mr Hugh Middleton, to fund private music lessons in the student’s chosen instrument for one year. The Elisabeth Middleton Instrumental Scholarship will be awarded annually to a student who needs financial assistance to continue to study the instrument of their choice. The value of the scholarship is based on the current Victorian Music Teachers Association, Visiting Music Teachers’ award and the number of lesson that the student is eligible to have in one year.

In 2023 the scholarship is valued at $2500. The money will be paid directly to the school. 

Assessment Criteria

The Scholarship is assessed by application taking three categories into consideration:
• Current level of playing ability (Grade 4 AMEB or equivalent is the minimum requirement)
