Bursary benefits Vietnam veterans' kids

FIFTY Vietnam veterans' children from across the nation will be given a helping hand as they prepare for study this year with funding through the Long Tan Bursary Scheme.

The grants are worth $9000 over three years.

Veterans' Affairs Minister Senator Michael Ronaldson said 14 New South Wales and 17 Queensland students had been successful in gaining bursaries this year.

"The Long Tan Bursary Scheme provides support to the sons and daughters of Vietnam veterans to help them pursue their chosen study or professional career," he said.

"The bursaries help students study a wide range of topics including nursing and other health sciences through to education, commerce and law.

"An education is the most valuable tool a person can have and I wish each and every one of 2014 Long Tan Bursary recipients the very best in their future endeavours."

Senator Ronaldson said the bursary was named after the Battle of Long Tan and there had been more than 450 recipients since the scheme started in 2000.
