Neal Wilson Music Scholarships

It is with great pleasure that we call for applications for the 2019 Neal Wilson Music Scholarship.

Neal Wilson established and ran the Nagle College Music Program from 1978 to 1997. As Director of Music, Neal engaged countless students to the music program who have cherished the gift of music. Before coming to Bairnsdale and Nagle College Neal was a Drum Major in the Australian Army Band. To this day we appreciate Neal’s contribution to our music program and thank the Bairnsdale RSL for recognising and continuing Neal’s legacy. This scholarship has been made possible by the generosity of the Bairnsdale RSL who wish to encourage students to develop and pursue instrumental music, both at Nagle College and continuing throughout their lives.

A $500 Scholarship will be awarded to a selected music student who is actively involved in instrumental music and intends to study classroom music up to and through their senior years. This scholarship is now open to music students from current Years 7 – 11.

Application forms may be downloaded from the link. Alternatively, printed copies can be collected from Student Reception or the music office. All applications need to be returned to the College (Student Reception) marked “Neal Wilson Scholarship” by 4 pm Wednesday 13 November 2019.

Contact: Director of Music Andrew Long for any further information.
