NMFA Launches Online Military Spouse Education Resource
When it comes to continuing education, frequent moves present challenges such as transferring credits to equivalent courses, varying state requirements, multiple application and processing fees - not to mention, the lost dollars for credits that don't transfer. With this in mind, NMFA designed a comprehensive online resource for military spouses pursuing higher education. This newly developed section arms military spouses with the information needed to successfully obtain their education goals. Find detailed information about starting your education; choosing and/or transferring schools; scholarships, grants, financial aid, in-state tuition; resources for the foreign-born spouse; mobile careers and more.
The deadline is approaching for the Scholarships for Military Children program. Applications for the $1,500 scholarships are available at 264 commissaries worldwide or can be downloaded through links at http://www.commissaries.com, http://www.militaryscholar.org, or http://www.dodea.edu. The $1,500 scholarships are available for children of military active-duty, retired, and Guard and Reserve servicemembers. Applications for 2007, which include an essay on "how and why" the applicant would change an historical event, must be turned in at a commissary by close of business on Feb. 21, 2007. At least one $1,500 scholarship will be awarded at every commissary location with qualified applicants. Remember: Not applying for scholarships is like turning down free money.
