The Defence Industry Veterans Employment Scheme (DIVES) scholarship program will encourage veterans to take-up a career in the defence industry. The program will be delivered by Defence West, in partnership with industry, starting in 2021.
The scholarship will support defence veterans to enter engineering trades and/or upskill into non-trade defence industry careers. The program will be co-funded between the State Government and industry, with each party contributing $5,000 per scholarship with a commitment to co-funding 20 scholarships a year.
