The 2020 Bradman Foundation Scholarship: NOW OPEN

Applications are now being accepted for the coveted 2020 Bradman Scholarship. After being required to leave school aged only 14, Sir Donald Bradman was very proactive in establishing the Bradman Scholarship in 1991. The scholarship is an amazing opportunity for two young Australians to receive a significant financial boost over a three-year period of undergraduate study, at an Australian University.


Every year the Bradman Foundation offers two scholarships to an Australian university. Over 29 years the scholarship has assisted many young cricketers with the costs associated in gaining a tertiary education, juggling study and cricket club commitments. The scholarship panel is headed by Bradman Foundation patron, former Prime Minister, John Howard and Foundation Chairman, Maurice Newman who will present the scholarships at the prestigious Bradman Gala dinner at the SCG in November, amongst the cricket and business elite. The recipients will join a stellar list of scholars who have demonstrated the values which Sir Donald Bradman espoused in both word and deed, like former recipients Alex Blackwell, Martin Love and Andrew Ridley to name a few.

It is open to all Australian undergraduate students – male and female - who have have demonstrated a commitment to study and their cricket community, along with Don Bradman’s values of integrity, dignity, courage, modesty and respect. The Bradman Scholarship provides a funding plan of $5,000 per year over three consecutive years, a total of $15,000, to each scholar.

Who is a Bradman Scholar?

The Bradman Foundation is not looking for purely academic achievers, the emphasis when choosing a Bradman Scholar is placed on a blend of academic, sporting, personal, social skills and community involvement. The Committee look for those who will benefit most by receiving the financial assistance provided by the scholarship. They equally look for students who have good character and leadership qualities, a solid record of sporting and academic accomplishments at school and hold an appreciation of cricket and its history.

This is a fabulous opportunity for young Australian citizens playing cricket and studying at university to secure financial assistance and live and breathe the Bradman values of courage, honour, humility, integrity and determination.

Eligible participants must be players, qualified coaches or umpires who are actively involved in the game of cricket while attending an Australian University as an undergraduate on a full-time basis.
