MyCAA Military Spouse Scholarship

Military spouses may be eligible for up to $4,000 in financial assistance through the MyCAA scholarship program.

Providing Up to $4,000 Toward Your Education

As a military spouse, you deserve a high-quality education that leads to an in-demand career. What's more, you need a career path that's portable, so relocation never gets in the way of reaching your goals. Whether you are studying at the undergraduate or graduate level, you may be eligible for up to $4,000 in financial assistance through the MyCAA scholarship program.
See the guidelines below for eligibility requirements and program details:

  • Spouse of an active duty servicemember or activated Guard or Reserve member in pay grades E1-E5, W1-W2, or O1-O2.
  • MyCAA accounts will be limited to a $4,000 maximum benefit with a $2,000 fiscal year cap. Waivers will be available for spouses pursuing licensure or certification up to the total maximum assistance of $4,000.
  • Spouses must finish their program of study within three years from the start date of the first course.
  • Funding is limited to select undergraduate certificates, licensure programs, and graduate certificates.
