Applications for an Award in 2020/21 may now be submitted.

The application form for this year’s Hawks’ Charitable Trust Awards can be found below, in both Word Document and PDF file formats.

The closing date for applications is Wednesday 21st April 2021.

Awards to students, undergraduate or graduate of either gender are made on the basis of sporting attainment and financial need. Applications should address the following criteria, which are those that the Trustees will use to judge suitability for an award:

  • Applicants should normally be resident members of, and competing for, the University.
  • Eligible sports should normally be those for which Cambridge Blues or Half-blues are awarded.
  • Actual level of sporting attainment should be demonstrated by achievement for the University and beyond (for 2020/21, potential may be taken into account).
  • Financial need must be adequately established, but levels of cost should also be taken into account.
  • Excellence in academic or in other extra-curricular areas should weigh in favour of applications.
  • Neither gender nor a wish to spread between sports should influence awards.
  • Applications must be supported by Tutor and Senior Treasurer/Member able to comment on the applicant’s financial circumstances. The most weight is given to those applications that are supported by the applicant’s Tutor.

Application forms may be supported by a separate single sheet cover letter expressing in no more than 400 words why you believe that you are suitable for an Award.

Completed applications for 2020/21 must be submitted, no later than Wednesday 21st April 2021, to:
