Let’s consider this post an introductory course on MYCAA Military Spouse Grants.

  • What is MYCAA?

It is unofficially referred to as Spouse Tuition Assistance.  The Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA) program, which was recently expanded by the Department of Defense,  provides up to $4,000 (over 2 years) of Financial Assistance for eligible military spouses who are pursuing degree programs, licenses or credentials leading to employment in portable career fields. 

  • What are the eligibility requirements?

Spouses of active duty service members in pay grades E1-E5, W1-W2, and O1-O2, as well as the spouses of activated Guard and Reserve members within those ranks. Spouses of Guard and Reserve members must be able to start and complete their courses while their sponsor is on Title 10 orders.

***Note: The MyCAA program does not include Coast Guard spouses.
