At a glance

The opportunity to study for an undergraduate degree significantly increases the number of opportunities for meaningful employment options veterans can pursue upon (re)entering civilian life. The provision of scholarships within the higher education space removes the financial burden that many face when following this path. Mentoring support provided through Soldier On’s Mentoring program ensures that student veterans are fully supported during their academic journey. Soldier On believes that over time this program will:

  • Increase the capability of veterans and their families as well as the Defence force overall;
  • Improve the ADF’s retention rate;
  • Improve the psycho/social outcomes of veterans and their families by reducing the number of medical and financial supports required and
  • Enable veterans and their families to thrive (our mission statement).
