Military Spouses Scholarships

Updated: August 13, 2012

Scholarships for military spouses and family members give the partners and sometimes children of military personnel some financial assistance to assist them in going to college or completing other tertiary studies.

Getting a higher education is costly! Some things you’ll need to budget for include –

  • 1. Tuition fees (normally several thousand dollars)
  • 2. Textbooks
  • 3. Laptop or computer
  • 4. Computer software (can be very expensive for some courses)
  • 5. Travel costs to the campus

If you can get a scholarship or grant, this can often cover all of these expenses.

Travel Costs & Online Education

If you’re planning to travel to a campus to study then you’ll also need to consider gas or public transport expenses. But a great way to cut out these costs altogether is to study through online learning. It means you can complete your studies at home and have all of the course material delivered to you either by email, through snail mail, through an online portal, or all of the above.

You can now do almost any course via full or partial online study and this is a great way to get your degree whilst being flexible with your studies. It also means you can do a course from any university or college in the country rather than being stuck with the ones that are physically located near you!

Military spouses scholarships can make your dreams come true. You will be able to go and study without stressing about payment and getting in debt with student loans.

These scholarships exist to recognize the sacrifice that the family of armed services people must make whilst their loved ones are away on active duty.

The last thing you need is a student loan that must be paid back; scholarships on the other hand are yours to keep and never have to be repaid!

    Hi, I am a mother of three and a military wife in Kenya for the past nine years. I have a passion to further my studies but my husband’s salary is not enough to take care of our three children plus my studies. I ave tried to look for money to go back to class so that i can further my studies in vain. Since I stay in a village where there are no colleges or universities, I will be required to travel for about one hour before i reach college. I will greatly appreciate any help.

    I am Humbly looking forward for your positive consideration.

    Thank you.
