Military Spouse Scholarship Apps Being Accepted Now

The only pre-qualification is a valid, current military ID.  Scholarship selection is based upon a short survey, a few short answer questions, and an essay.

  • GED or ESL
  • Vocational training
  • Professional certification
  • Post-secondary
