Military Spouse Scholarships

Giving Back

Military families make extraordinary sacrifices. While there is no way to truly repay these families, some benefits can help to ease the burdens associated with military life.

Scholarships are one way to give back to the families of service members. Private organizations and federal programs offer several scholarship and grant opportunities.

Paying for college doesn’t have to be a barrier to getting an education.

Available Scholarship Opportunities


The My Career Advancement Account (MyCAA) Scholarship is a workforce development program that provides eligible military spouses with up to $4,000 in financial assistance for obtaining licenses, certifications, national tests, or associate degrees to pursue an occupation or future career.
