The coveted Bradman Scholarship, which has been awarded since 1990, is a nationwide program designed to aid undergraduate university students balance their cricketing and academic pursuits. Expanded in 2019 to include both a male and a female recipient each year, Bradman Scholars continue to achieve both on and off the field.

 This year, as summer gets underway, a number of our former Scholars are making an impressive start to the season; representing their teams, themselves and the Bradman Foundation, with distinction.

 Executive Director of the Bradman Foundation, Rina Hore, is pleased to see recipients of the Scholarship succeeding and maintaining an active association with the game – well beyond the three-year-long term of the Scholarship. “For me, it is great to see that the Scholarship is achieving what it sets out to; allowing young people to balance their studies while pursuing their cricket dreams,” she said. “We are so proud of all of our Scholars.”
