The Defence Technical Scholarship (DTS) is designed for Year 11 and 12 students studying maths. It is a scholarship focused on students undertaking a technical trade pathway, not a tertiary pathway. There is no commitment for DTS recipients to join the Australian Defence Force (ADF); however students must demonstrate an interest in ADF Technical Trades to complete the application process. The Scholarship provides $2000 for Year 11 and $3000 for Year 12 students. You can get an application pack from Mr Walker the Careers Advisor. Applications must be handed in by the 29th February.
Advice on the Application Form
The scenario question this year is more complex than previous years. The ADF suggest when your students look at Question 3 they need to spend some time at http://www.navy.gov.au/Canberra_Class.
