MyCAA Military Spouse Scholarship Program

Earn military tuition assistance and a variety of education benefits and financial aid at UMGC Europe.

As a military spouse, you deserve a high-quality education that leads to an in-demand career. What's more, you need a career path that's portable, so relocation never gets in the way of reaching your goals. You may be eligible for up to $4,000 in financial assistance through the MyCAA scholarship program.

See the guidelines below for eligibility requirements and program details:

  • Spouses of service members on active duty in pay grades E-1 to E-6*, W-1 to W-2 and O-1 to O-3* who have successfully completed high school and have the ability to request tuition assistance while their military sponsor is on Title 10 military orders are eligible.
  •  Spouses married to members of the National Guard and reserves in these same pay grades are eligible.

* The first 1,250 approved applicants in pay grades E-6 and O-3 will receive MyCAA financial assistance based on available funding.
