Inside the programme was a Donation form for the Kenneth Leighton Memorial Scholarship.  
  In addition to being a composer, Kenneth Leighton was a distinguished teacher and in recognition of this it is proposed to set up a fund which will provide financial  assistance to students in the Faculty of Music at the University of Edinburgh who wish to engage in further study.  The award, to be known as 'The Kennth Leighton Memorial Scholarship' will be made annually.
