Did you know qualified individuals may be able to receive up to $6,000 for your spouse’s information technology training and certification?

The Department of Defense’s expanded Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts program is now offering up to $6,000 in benefits to military spouses who are interested in pursuing degree programs, licenses or credentials leading to careers in high growth, high demand portable career fields.

Who is eligible? 

Spouses of active duty members and activated members of the National Guard and Reserve components are qualified to participate in the training program.

The period of eligibility for spouses of National Guard and military Reserve members is from the date of the alert or warning order for military recall or mobilization, through activation and deployment until 180 days following demobilization.

Military spouses who are military members themselves are not eligible.

Those individuals who are currently in the military already have education benefits provided through the Military Voluntary Education Tuition Assistance Program.
