This scholarship is given in the memory of Wilfred Jones, for the dedication he gave to the education of students of stringed instruments. He was particularly cognisant of those young musicians who lived in areas where there was a lack of music teachers and contact with the wider music fraternity, and frequently travelled to country regions to give individual lessons or participate in Music Camps. This Grant will assist in continuing his goals.

The Wilfred Jones Scholarship has been made possible thanks to the generosity of Frances Browne and Trevor Jones.


One scholarship will be awarded to support a participant in one of the Melbourne Youth Orchestras ensembles travelling from regional Victoria.


The Wilfred Jones Scholarship will be awarded to support a student who is fully enrolled in an ensemble with Melbourne Youth Orchestras for 2018, on any instrument, and who resides in regional Victoria.
