Jack Egan Awards
Jack Egan spent his early years on the family property near Warren in western New South Wales. He then attended as a boarder first Tudor House from 1950 to 1954 and then The King’s School from 1955 to 1959. He served on the Tudor House Council from 1 January 1998 until his death on 12 July 2007.
Jack Egan became Dux of Tudor House and School Captain of The King’s School. He was also distinguished by his sporting abilities, his love of the Australian bush, and his passion for writing. His love of life, good natured irreverence and natural charm meant he made many long lasting friendships easily. In recognition of “Jackos” fondness of Tudor House, a number of his friends established this Award to perpetuate his memory and to assist other students to derive the same great benefits from Tudor House.
- The Award is intended to promote the education of the recipient at the School. Applicants will need to demonstrate a good level of academic competency together with attributes in a particular field such as sport, music, drama, or art relevant to the School’s educational offering.
- The Award is subject to a financial eligibility assessment. Recipients will be selected based upon the absence of the financial means needed for a candidate’s family to bear the cost of the candidate attending the School without financial assistance. The need for financial assistance is to be demonstrated to the Foundation’s general satisfaction that the applicant would not otherwise be able to attend the School if not for the availability of the Bursary.
- Candidates must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident.
- Applications for this Award are open to eligible individuals or groups of individuals throughout Australia, a state, a territory, or a region of at least 200,000 people.
