The National Military Family Association is accepting applications for NMFA's Joanne Holbrook Patton Military Spouse Scholarships
. Scholarships are awarded to military spouses to obtain professional certification or to attend post secondary or graduate school.
Applications will only be accepted online at www.nmfa.org/scholarship.
Spouses of Uniformed Service members (active duty, National Guard and Reserve, retirees, and survivors) of any branch or rank are eligible to apply. Scholarships normally range from $500 to $1,000 and may be used for tuition, fees, and school room and board.
Through a new partnership with the Military Channel, NMFA has expanded the Joanne Holbrook Patton Military Spouse Scholarship Program
in 2007 to provide additional scholarships to a larger number of deserving military spouses. NMFA recognizes that unique challenges like frequent moves and deployments can interfere with military spouses' ability to complete their education. NMFA's military spouse education initiative is dedicated to helping military spouses gain the education they need to reach their full career potential. Visit www.nmfa.org/SpouseEd
for additional resources.
