Council administers the award in honour of Toowoomba violin and instrument maker Norman Miller, who died in 2005.
Mr Miller donated one of his finely crafted violins to the former Toowoomba City Council in 1996 and the award has been presented to promising musicians since then. The award instrument was made in 1990.
Applicants are appraised by a panel of string specialists and have a loan of the violin for a year.
Aspiring violinists can enhance their musical career prospects by applying for Toowoomba Regional Council's Norman Miller Violin award.
The award is open to Toowoomba region violin students AMEB Grade 3 and above. Students aged 10 or older who study violin with private teachers or at Toowoomba region schools also can apply.
Toowoomba Regional Council is proud to offer the William Groom Centenary of Toowoomba City Scholarship to 18 - 24 year olds, who are commencing their second or third year of a SQIT diploma or USQ degree course.
The scholarship provides $5,000 to the successful applicant.
The scholarship was established in 2004 to mark the centenary of Toowoomba’s declaration as a city. It honours the many achievements of the municipality’s first mayor William Henry Groom, who served several terms from 1861 before winning seats in the Queensland and Commonwealth Parliaments.
Students who play an active role in creating a better community now have the chance to make their own dreams a reality through the William Henry Groom Centenary of Toowoomba Scholarship.
Applications are traditionally called in late October each year, with the scholarship winner announced at Toowoomba’s Australia Day ceremony.
