The Hawks’ Charitable Trust provides awards to support students from all Colleges who are engaged in sport at the Varsity, national or international level.  We'd encourage all students who are competing for the University to apply for a Hawks’ award, the deadline for which is usually early in the Lent Term. Applications and information are available on their website.
