AVCAT transforming lives through education


Mentorship Pilot Program

Register your interest in becoming a mentor.

The pilot program will run for a minimum of six months beginning in August 2021. Register your interest to receive further information.

AVCAT’s mentorship pilot program is a great opportunity to share your lived experience and help guide an AVCAT scholar as they navigate their tertiary education journey. Mentors will receive free comprehensive training from an experienced professional and ongoing support.


The AVCAT Alumni Network aims to enhance the connection AVCAT Alumni have with each other and current AVCAT scholars in a unique community of children and grandchildren of Australian veterans.

Being awarded an AVCAT Scholarship or Long Tan Bursary is a special experience that acknowledges the service of a family member and the talent and ambition of the scholar.

Your membership in the AVCAT Alumni Network provides opportunities.

Opportunities to keep in touch, support each other, engage in professional networking on a national scale and give back to the work of AVCAT. We hope you use these opportunities and enhance your connection to your unique community of graduates who know where you’re coming from, because they’ve been there too.

In 2021 AVCAT will announce further plans to expand opportunities; with plans for a mentorship program and an alumni-funded scholarship for future AVCAT scholars.
