2013 Hawker Scholarship

2013 Hawker Scholarship  
The 2013 C.A.S. Hawker Scholarships open on Monday December 10th and close on Friday 4th January 2013.

The C.A.S. Hawker Scholarship is one of the most generous privately funded scholarships available to undergraduate students in Australia. Each scholarship is valued at up to $45,000 over three years.

Information about the C.A.S. Hawker Scholarship and an application form are available at www.hawkerscholarship.org or by contacting the secretary to the Trustees on 08 8127 1654.

The Charles Hawker Scholarship perpetuates the memory of scholar, soldier, pastoralist and statesman Charles Allan Seymour Hawker and commemorates the achievements of one of Australia’s most respected pastoral pioneers.

Governor-General Ms Quentin Bryce AC presented the 2011 scholarships and Governor of South Australia, Rear Admiral Kevin Scarce AC CSC RANR officiated at the 2012 presentation ceremony.

The scholarships are available to all Australian students. Since 1990 the majority have been awarded to students entering their first year of university study. The Scholarships provide support for a student’s residential expenses in nominated university colleges and halls and may include some university course fees.

Selection is largely based on personal qualities as well as academic ability. Undergraduate Hawker Scholars are able to attend a range of Australian educational institutions.
