The 2017 C.A.S. Hawker Scholarships open on Monday 5th December and will close on Friday 6th January 2017.
The C.A.S. Hawker Scholarship is one of the most generous privately funded scholarships available to undergraduate and post-graduate students in Australia. Each residential scholarship is valued at up to $60,000 over 3 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 in Adelaide on 08 8127 1654.
The Charles Hawker Scholarship perpetuates the memory of scholar, soldier, politician and pastoralist Charles Allan Seymour Hawker. The Scholarship commemorates the achievements of one of Australia’s most respected statesmen.
“C.A.S. Hawker was a truly remarkable man and a great Australian. We encourage all young Australian students to apply for a scholarship. We are always interested to receive applications from students in regional Australia,” Mr Andrew Hawker, Scholarship Trustee and Hawker family member said.
C.A.S. Scholarships are available to all Australian students and the majority have been awarded to students entering their first year of university study. Since 1990, the Trustees have awarded 114 C.A.S. Hawker Scholarships. Of these, 45 recipients were students who lived at St Mark’s College and 3 of them, Rachel Buxton, Anthony Roediger and Phillip Killicoat, have gone on to become Rhodes Scholars.
Selection is based not only on academic ability but also on personal qualities and demonstrated leadership. Undergraduate and post-graduate Hawker Scholars are able to attend a range of Australian educational institutions. If they are studying at one of the three universities in Adelaide they can reside at St Mark’s College in North Adelaide.
