The Australian Veterans’ Children Assistance Trust (AVCAT) Scholarships
The Australian Veterans’ Children Assistance Trust (AVCAT) is a national independent charity administering tertiary scholarships for children and grandchildren of ex-service men and women.
AVCAT’s aim is to help the children and grandchildren of ex-servicemen 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. Our recipients come from all over Australia and study an enormous variety of courses.
At present AVCAT is helping around 180 children with the costs of study. We administer about 70 scholarships a year for the Department of Veterans’ Affairs as well as various ex-service organisations (including RSL and Legacy). Scholarship selection is open to children and in some cases grandchildren of a veteran and is based on need and merit. Applicants can be high-school leavers starting university or current university students and eligible for Youth Allowance hence studying full time.
Scholarships are generally paid for three years and are between $3,000 and $4,000 per year.
Applications for 2015 are now closed..
