C.A.S Hawker Scholarship

This financial support is not administered by the University.


The C.A.S. Hawker Scholarship is one of the most generous privately funded scholarships available to undergraduate and post-graduate students in Australia. 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. Scholarships are available to all Australian students. The majority have been awarded to students entering their first year of university study. Since 1990, the Trustees have awarded 132 C.A.S. Hawker Scholarship, many to regional students. Selection is largely based on personal qualities and demonstrated leadership as well as academic ability. Undergraduate and post-graduate Hawker Scholars are able to attend a range of Australian educational institutions. Post-graduate Charles Hawker Scholars are also able to follow in Charles Hawker's footsteps by enrolling at Trinity College and studying at Cambridge UK.

In 2021, three students had been selected as 2021 C.A.S. Hawker scholars and two of these students are currently studying at ANU.
