The Anna Chmiel Memorial Scholarship program has been established to remember MYO member and gifted musician Anna Chmiel, who died tragically, age 19 in 2012.  In her life she developed a love of art, music and creative expression.  She would frequently tell friends and family that her time as a member of the Melbourne Youth Orchestras program was truly one of the happiest periods of her life.

Anna’s family have established this scholarship as a lasting tribute to recognise the significant contribution music plays in the lives of young people.


Support is available towards Ensemble Program annual membership fees.


Students must be fully enrolled in our Ensemble Program. Scholarships will be awarded to students from families experiencing demonstrable financial hardship.
