The Australian Veterans' Children Assistance Trust (AVCAT) is a national independent charity that manages tertiary scholarships and bursaries for the children and grandchildren of Ex-Service men and women. The scholarships managed by AVCAT are valued at approximately $4000 per year, for up to three years of full time study.

The scholarships are sponsored by the Australian Government Department of Veterans' Affairs (Long Tan Bursary), Ex-service organisations, corporate sponsors, community groups and individual donors.
