Scholarships for Military Spouses

Military spouse clubs near military bases frequently offer scholarships for military spouses. Scholarships for military dependents are a great way to save money on college expenses, and help support the local community through continued military spouse education. If selected to receive a scholarship, eligible military spouses and military dependents could receive money for college and continued education, ranging from $500 to $2500, or even more.

Often these scholarships are only offered to military dependents whose sponsor is assigned to a certain military base, however each scholarship will have their own application criteria, so be sure to check the specific requirements before applying. In most cases club membership is not even a requirement. Some scholarships are also open to spouses of retired military personnel, and spouses of department of defense civilians. There are also scholarships for children of veterans.

Military spouses and dependents are sometimes eligible to reapply for the scholarship year after year. Previous winners may receive emails in the future, encouraging them to reapply.

The money awarded through military dependent scholarships sponsored by these local clubs is intended to help eligible military dependents pay for college, and help military spouses strengthen their career skills.

In conjunction with the Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA) program, military spouses can save a lot of money on tuition and other education related expenses. There are also plenty of military friendly colleges to choose from, when looking for a degree program to use any applicable scholarship money for.
