The Sir Ernest MacMillan Memorial Foundation Award is intended to assist a young Canadian musician or music scholar, typically at the advanced stage of their music education. The recipient is chosen through a competitive process that is national in scope. Awards are offered annually or biennially.

Reflecting Sir Ernest's wide-ranging endeavours, for many years the award was offered in different areas of music such as composition, conducting, instrumental and vocal performance, pedagogy, early music, chamber music, collaborative piano and music education. More recently, awards have been offered in areas of music for which Sir Ernest was best known, specifically, conducting and organ.
