The Dorian le Gallienne Composition Trust Award was established in 1964 by subscribers in memory of Dorian le Gallienne, a Melbourne composer who taught composition in the Conservatorium between 1954 and 1960 and who died in 1963. Melbourne University became trustee of the fund in 1998.
The award is made biennially in June on the recommendation of the Dorian le Gallienne Award Committee to a composer resident in Victoria whom the committee considers merits recognition and encouragement. The committee commissions the winner to compose a chamber composition to be completed and performed within such period as the committee determines.
