I recently underwent selection for the Army Scholarship, and as there is a terribly small amount of information available, if anyone wants help then do message me.

Do you know what the applicant/ scholarship ratio is?

It is quite high. Roughly 40/50 selected and even in a bad year I would say several hundred apply, figures I have been quoted put that at in the region of 800 (very rough) So 16:1.
However, these figures are simply for the initial application. They will be cut down in the initial interviews, getting rid of the unsuitable candidates. Then during medical examinations etc, the invalid candidates and gotten rid of. Finally the scrutiny board further refines it down to those who will go to final selection.
For the final selection it is narrowed down to in the region of 250, with the possibility of 100 scholarships being awarded. This gives a very achievable ratio of 2.5:1, though 5:1 would be more realistic as 100 scholarships are never awarded.
