Each year the ANU Cricket Club may offer the ANU Cricket Club Scholarship with the objective of:
- Attract talented cricketers to ANU Cricket Club;
- Increase access and opportunity for students to play cricket for ANU Cricket Club;
- Assist in developing the cricketing potential of the recipient;
- Provide the social benefits of being an ANU Cricket Club member, and through membership, enhance university experience and career outcomes.
Funding for this Award has been provided by ANU Cricket Club Alumni and friends. Particular thanks and recognition to ANUCC alumnus David Carland for his leadership in establishing this Award.
The Award is available each year to a prospective or current ANU student who:
- is a domestic student; and
- has accepted an offer of admission to an undergraduate or postgraduate degree by coursework program at the University; or
- will be actively enrolled in an undergraduate or postgraduate degree program at the University;
- at the time of application, is playing cricket in a Junior/Senior Club, or High School/College Cricket Competition; and
- has a current MyCricket Identification number.
Previous ANUCC scholarship recipients are eligible to apply.
Selection consists of three phases and is made on the basis of application and demonstrated cricketing ability.
Phase one involves candidates being assessed on their application and the merit of their respective cricketing experience. ANUCC will invite suitable candidates from phase 1 to attend a cricket skills trial in phase two.
Phase two involves a cricket skills trial with ANUCC where candidates will demonstrate their cricket ability through a number of skill exercises.
If necessary, following phase two, suitable candidates will proceed to an interview with the ANUCC scholarship committee.
Where there are multiple candidates of equal cricketing ability, preference will be given in order of priority to:
a) candidates that can provide evidence that they have lived in a remote, rural or regional area of Australia for:
- a period of at least 12 months in the past 2 years; or
- at least 12 months within 2 years prior to the commencement of their undergraduate degree.
(Remote, rural and regional eligibility will be determined via the geographical classification defined by the Australian Statistical Geography Standard - ASGS, at DoctorConnect)
b) candidates who identify, and are accepted, as an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person.
The scholarship offers a stipend of $5,000 per annum for up to 2 years.
