AVCAT is a national independent charity dedicated to the selection and management of tertiary scholarships for the children and grandchildren of Australian veterans. We are supported by the Australian Government Department of Veteran Affairs, ex-service organisations, corporate sponsors and individual donors. You can find out more about our generous sponsors here.
In 2016, AVCAT received almost 300 applications for tertiary scholarships. From these applications, more than 110 scholarships were awarded to students enrolled in a variety of tertiary courses across Australia. Each year, the number of applications for our scholarships continues to grow. We are always seeking further support from the ex-service and business communities to meet this increase and to ensure that the financial support so greatly needed by tertiary students can be provided. Your generosity to these veterans’ children can help heal past wounds and ensure they have a productive future ahead of them.
