MyCAA: Scholarship for MilSpouses

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


About The MyCAA Scholarship

The My Career Advancement Account Scholarship is open to spouses of active-duty service members in pay grades E-1 to E-5, W-1 to W-2 and O-1 to O-2 who have successfully completed high school and have the ability to request tuition assistance while their military sponsor is on Title 10 military orders. Spouses married to members of the National Guard and reserves in these same pay grades are eligible. You can check your eligibility for the scholarship by visiting the MyCAA website and applying for an account.

Under the new law, military spouses can now use MyCAA with the cost of national tests for course credits required for a degree approved under the program. This includes the College Level Examination Program tests. It also ensures that military spouses receive financial assistance to pursue or maintain (including continuing education courses) a license, certification or associate degree in any career field or occupation.
