Welcome to AVCAT

The Australian Veteran’s Children Assistance Trust (AVCAT) is a national independent charity helping the children and grandchildren of ex-service men and women to a better future through higher education.

Through the help of our generous donors AVCAT administers scholarships to the children of those who have served our country in peace and war in the Australian Army, Navy and Airforce. Scholarship selection is on a need and merit basis.

Our recipients come from all over Australia and study an enormous variety of courses. Over the years we have had doctors, psychiatrists and engineers, teachers, scientists, meteorologists, ballet dancers, circus performers, creative writers, film makers – the list goes on. Our students attend universities, TAFE colleges and other approved tertiary institutions around Australia.
