I’ve received lots of email asking about if there were any scholarships for college for military spouses.  In this post, I would like to explain about what scholarships military spouses could use for their college tuition and how to apply for them.

  1. First of all, all of the scholarships or tuition assistance programs for military spouses are MyCAA – The MyCAA program began in November 2007 as a joint initiative between the Department of Defense and the Department of Labor and was initially available to spouses of junior enlisted members.  Click here to read more about facts about MyCAA.

  2. There are lots of private schools or colleges offer scholarships or tuition assistance for military spouses.  While looking for money for school many surviving spouses and their families overlook the over $300 million of military – and veteran – related scholarships and grants. These scholarships programs also can be applied in some cases.  However, Scholarships are too difficult to win and applying requires too much work.
  3. Each military branch also offers tuition assistance or educational benefit programs
