The 2022 C.A.S. Hawker Scholarships open on Monday 6th December and close on Friday 7th January 2022.

C.A.S. Hawker Scholarships are one of the most generous privately funded scholarships available to undergraduate students in Australia. Each residential scholarship is valued at up to $60,000 over three years. The scholarships are available to all Australian students. The majority have been awarded to students entering their first year of university studies.

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

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

In the past decade, C.A.S. Hawker Scholarships have been presented by Governors-General Ms Quentin Bryce AC and Major General Michael Jeffery AC, former Speaker of the House of Representatives Hon David Hawker AO, Australian of the Year Dr Richard Harris SC OAM, Director of the Australian War Memorial Dr. Brendan Nelson AO, NFF President Ms Fiona Simson and the Governor of South Australia the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC.
