The scholarship was founded in 1967 by Senate in recognition of the lifelong work of the Venerable Archdeacon Edward Leo Hayes. The scholarship is awarded for the purpose of assisting a mature-age student to pursue an undergraduate program at the University of Queensland.
The scholarship is open to applicants who are not less than 25 years of age on the date the application must be lodged, and intend to enrol at the university in the first semester of the year of award. Selection is based on: financial hardship and the difficulties that may have been overcome to enrol at the university; previous academic achievement; and other evidence as may be deemed relevant. Preference will be given to students who lived or worked in the area of the Darling Downs for a period of 12 months. If there is no such applicant, Senate may either defer the scholarship or award it to another person.
The scholarship is valued at $3,000 per year for the normal minimum duration of the course.
