What is in store for military spouses that are looking to earn a higher distance learning education? Benefits towards an online college or online college degrees are in the high available numbers for military spouses. No matter what branch your spouse may be in with the military, there are possible benefits for each section.
We are going to provide one grant for education listed with the branch that offers this online college opportunity.
- Army – The Army’s Spouse Education Assistance Program
- Coast Guard – The CGMA Supplemental Education Grant Program
- Marine/Navy – The NMCRS Education Assistance Program
Most programs are to help spouses further a secondary distance learning education or even if they are starting ours as first-time students.
Who provides these benefits, or are they just readily available at any university/college? The VA (U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs) ensures that everyone within the military has the advantage of distance learning education.
Here is a list of online college universities that have teamed up to offer full paid tuitions or paying in full for fees, books, etc. There are affordable online colleges if you receive a grant that does not cover everything.
- Strayer University
- University of Phoenix
- Southern New Hampshire University
- Walden University
- Simmons University
- Brandman University
All military spouses should look at this grant for education called the Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts. This program can help to show a clear sign and path towards an online bachelor’s degree. Or any other level of online college degrees. For two years, this program hands out $4,000 for military spouses or dependents. Even though this grant helps with only an Associate’s degree, well you need an Associate before you can reach an online Bachelor‘s degree.
And on top of that grant, you can apply for military spouse scholarships that will provide enough funding for an online Bachelor’s degree for your online education.
