AVCAT Alumni Network

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.

Giving Back – AVCAT Alumni Scholarship

The AAN Scholarship is a great way to give back and be a part of supporting the next generation of veteran families. We need to raise $5,000 each year, can you help us achieve our goal?

An AVCAT scholarship can be life-changing, and the impact is multifaceted. It provides motivation, financial support, and importantly, a sense of community and pride.

This scholarship is for a scholar at the beginning of their tertiary education.

Donate today to help change a life.
