August 18 is Vietnam Veteran’s Day, and the day the Battle of Long Tan was fought between the Australian Army and Viet Cong forces in a rubber plantation near the village of Long Tan, about 27 kilometres north east of Vung Tau, South Vietnam on 18 August 1966.

The Long Tan Bursary scheme was established to help eligible children of Vietnam veterans meet the cost of post-secondary education. The Long Tan Bursary scheme is funded by the Australian Government Department of Veterans’ Affairs. It is one of the scholarships managed by AVCAT.
