National Service Scholarship Foundation

National Service was introduced by the Government as the compulsory conscription of young men in Australia between 1951 and 1972.  A total of 287,000 eligible Australian males were called up to serve with the Navy, Army and Air Force.  Over this period, 212 servicemen were killed on active service and many more were wounded or suffered from disease or mental stress.

Today, National Servicemen and their families make up a significant component of the Australian population. To honour their service to our Nation, we have created a Scholarship Foundation with the following purposes:

  • To fund scholarships as a means of directly supporting research into medical solutions that will provide an improved quality of the life of all Australians;
  • Scholarships will be awarded to individuals or groups for targeted medical, dental, nursing and/or allied health, further education and research;
  • The Foundation will develop a sustainable, relevant and living commemoration of the contribution made by National Servicemen to our Nation.
