Ambassador Joe Hockey 

“The depth and strength of the alliance between Australia and America is bound by common values and I am proud of the extremely tight bond I have as an Australian living in the USA.”

  “Looking forward to partnering with Greg Norman on the inaugural Mateship Charity Golf Tournament. Very few Australians have made as much of an impact as Greg has in the US. He is the definition of what Mateship is all about.”

Overview

The relationship between Australia and the United States is unique in its breadth, depth and length, and characterised by genuine cultural affinity and a robust framework of bilateral cooperation. In 2018, Australia and the United States will mark a centenary of mateship - a friendship first formed in the trenches of World War I during the Battle of Hamel on July 4, 1918. Join us as we celebrate the first 100 years of Mateship on the golf course at the Inaugural Mateship Charity Golf Tournament.

American Australian Veterans’ Scholarship Fund

Australia is the only country to have fought side by side with the United States in every major military
conflict since WWI, the only ally whose generals command US forces in the field, and which is fully integrated with US military and intelligence operations.

In recognition of the depth and strength of this 100 year alliance, the Association is launching a new American Australian Veterans’ Scholarship Fund. Honorably discharged Australian and American veterans will have the opportunity to study abroad and experience first-hand the culture and society of each others’ country.

The program will enable eligible veterans to enroll in an accredited course of one year’s duration or longer that leads to the award of an undergraduate or postgraduate degree at a tertiary institution.

The Association will partner with veterans’ support organizations of both sides of the Pacific to assist with outreach, review, and selection of award recipients, as well as to provide mentorship to awarded veterans.

The program was launched from proceeds raised at the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea Commemorative Dinner on May 4th and forms a new pillar in the Association’s Education Fund.
