NZSA Lilian Ida Smith Award

This award is run biennially and will run next in 2017

Applications for this Award open 21 July 2017

The Lilian Ida Smith Award provides the successful applicant with an award of $3000 to assist them towards completion of a specific project.

The Lilian Ida Smith Award was initiated when Lilian Ida Smith, a music teacher of Wanganui who had a keen interest in the arts, left part of her legacy to the NZ Society of Authors to ‘assist people aged 35yrs and over to embark upon or further a literary career’.
The first award was made in 1986. The amount of the award is obtained by accumulating interest on the capital of the bequest. The last award was made in 2011. The award is only open to financial members of the NZ Society of Authors who are aged 35 years or over.
Deadline for applications to be received is 5pm, Friday 30 October 2017.
