About the Scholarship
"Charles Hawker has a lasting impact on Australian politics and was highly respected by members on both sides of the federal parliament,"
"He was Australia's first Minister for Commerce in the Lyons government in the 1930s. He was being seriously considered as Australia's wartime Prime Minister. His untimely death prevented him from achieving his full potential. He was a truly remarkable man, a great Australian and his story is inspirational,"
- Hawker family member and scholarship Trustee Mr. Andrew Hawker
