Founded in 1872, the Hawks’ Club is a unique institution that acts as the supportive core for sportsmen in the University of Cambridge. The usual criterion for membership is that the candidate should have his blue – i.e. taken part in a match or race against Oxford in his particular sport. Countless outstanding athletes have passed through the club in its illustrious history, including numerous Olympians and Internationals. Today the Club is stronger than ever, with over 5,000 members across the globe and up to 250 residential members.
The Hawks Charitable Trust was established in 1996. Donations from Hawks, including a generous bequest, have enabled it to support the best sporting talent, male and female, in the University though a series of awards and bursaries – the largest source of such funding in the University. In recent years, disbursements in excess of £22,000 in total have been made to some 140 sportsmen and women each year.
