Each year, AVCAT offers a number of tertiary scholarships to the children and grandchildren of Australian veterans. These scholarships are sponsored by the Australian Government Department of Veterans' Affairs, various ex-service organisations, corporate sponsors, and individual donors. Different scholarships have different eligibility criteria - as part of the assessment process our assessors work out the scholarships for which you may be eligible.
For example, the Long Tan Bursary is offered specifically to the children of Vietnam Veterans and is worth $4,000 a year for up to three years of full-time study.
As another example, the New South Wales Nurses and Midwives' Association Scholarship is offered to a student who is studying, or intending to study, a degree in Nursing or Midwifery at a tertiary institution in NSW or the ACT. This scholarship is worth $4,000 a year for up to three years of full-time study.
