Mrs. Patty Shinseki Spouse Scholarship Program
2019-2020 Academic Year

The Mrs. Patty Shinseki Spouse Scholarship Program is a need-based scholarship program established to assist Spouses of Army Soldiers in obtaining their undergraduate degrees. Applicants must re-apply each year and may receive assistance for up to four academic years of full-time study or eight academic years of part-time study if they meet the eligibility criteria explained in the instructions below.

The award amounts vary each year based on the number of applicants, total approved scholarship budget, the applicant's Expected Family Contribution (EFC) reported on the Student Aid Report (SAR) from the FAFSA, and the average Cost of Attendance to attend a college or university in the United States as provided by the College Board. For the 2018-2019 academic year, the Spouse awards ranged from $500 to $2,200.

There is no deadline to apply for a Spouse scholarship, however, please review the Time Table below that outlines our Application Cycles. You will only submit one application per academic year. If you are awarded a scholarship, we will notify you by email prior to each term (fall, spring, summer) based on your enrollment plan indicated in your application. 

Please apply during the Cycle that ensures your funds will be disbursed when needed. The first Application Cycle opens on 1 April 2019. The link to apply is at the bottom of this page.
