2018 USA to AUSTRALIA VETERAN SCHOLARSHIP ROUND
AMERICAN-AUSTRALIAN VETERANS’ SCHOLARSHIP FUND

 

The American Australian Association is now accepting applications from American Veterans interested in studying in Australia.


Each year the Association hosts two veteran scholarship rounds, which support international study and exchange in each direction between our two countries.  Scholarships are awarded up to a maximum of US$40,000 for one-year, to support technical, professional, undergraduate or graduate study across all disciplinary fields. The scholarship award may be used to support travel, living, tuition or other associated costs.
  

 

2018 Round 1 – Australia to USA Veterans (This round is awarded. Please view our 2018 A-U veteran scholar class here.  The 2019 Australia to USA veteran round will re-open on Feb 15, 2019).

 

2018 Round 2 – USA to Australia Veterans (applications now open, with a closing date of October 15, 2018)

 

AMERICAN-AUSTRALIAN VETERANS' SCHOLARSHIP FUND

 

Launched in 2017 on the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea, our new American-Australian Veterans’ Scholarship Fund (AAVSF) honors and thanks our military veterans for their valiant service.  The AAVSF invests in our veterans’ futures through the provision of educational opportunities which help develop and build new skills.

 

By the end of this year, the American-Australian Veterans’ Scholarship Fund will have helped propel 20 veteran scholars, ten each from America and Australia, on the path toward prosperous new careers.
