Helping children and young people with education and career training

Did you know - DVA’s Education Schemes provide financial assistance and other support services to eligible children and dependants of current and former Australian Defence Force personnel who have either died or been severely wounded or injured because of their service.

DVA provides this assistance through the Veterans’ Children Education Scheme (VCES) established under the VEA legislation, or the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act Education and Training Scheme (MRCAETS) established under the MRCA legislation.

Further information, including eligibility and other Education Schemes benefits, can be found on the Education Schemes page of DVA’s website.
