The UWA Hackett Scholarship is provided by The University of Western Australia ('the University') to assist and encourage eligible Year 12 WACE school leavers with great potential, to commence and pursue a bachelor's degree at the University.

Eligible students will automatically be awarded this scholarship, and students from regional or remote WA will be guaranteed a place at University Hall.
