Our Center launched in February 2016 new online non-credit courses designed specifically for spouses of active military personnel to take advantage of the MyCAA scholarship workforce development program. The scholarships are funded by the Department of Defense and provide up to $4,000 of tuition assistance to eligible military spouses. Scholarships can be used to register for dozens of the Center’s online courses that lead to certificates and certifications necessary to gain employment in high-demand, high-growth, portable career fields and occupations. A few examples are pharmacy technician, human resources specialist, childcare specialist, corrections specialist, legal writing specialist, and IT network specialist.
- Spouses of active duty service members in pay grades E1-E5, W1-W2, and O1-O2 of any branch of the military are eligible, including activated Guard and Reserve (but excluding Coast Guard).
- So far, we have 32 participants and counting in the MyCAA program.
