Premier’s Anzac Memorial Scholarship (PAMS)

Premier’s Anzac Memorial Scholarship (PAMS)

The Premier’s Anzac Memorial Scholarship gives high school students the opportunity to travel on an international study tour to develop their knowledge and understanding of the history of Australians at war. 


The 2019 Premier’s Anzac Memorial Scholarship tour 

In 2019 the Scholarship will fund a study tour for 20 students to travel to Germany, France and Belgium during September and October. Students will visit the battlefields where Australians fought to learn about the causes of the First and Second World Wars, and to commemorate their service.


Teachers - Applications have closed 

NSW History teachers were invited to submit an Expression of Interest for the role of Accompanying Teacher on the PAMS 2019 tour. Applications for these roles closed at 5pm on Monday 3 December 2018.



A ballot was held on Wednesday 17 October 2018 to draw 20 schools. Each of the schools drawn is now responsible for selecting a maximum of three History students who are enrolled in either Year 10 or 11 in 2019, and who will turn 16 years of age by 27 September 2019, the departure date of the tour. The Office for Veterans Affairs will consider the candidates put forward by each school and complete the final selection process to choose one student per school.
