Spouse Education Assistance Program

Spouse Education Assistance Program

The Spouse Education Assistance Program is a need-based scholarship program established to assist Spouses of Army Soldiers in obtaining their undergraduate degrees. Applicants must 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 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 2017-2018 academic year, the Spouse awards ranged from $350 to $2,810.

The normal scholarship application window is from 1 January through 2 April for the upcoming academic year. However, for Spouses, we have implemented a new rolling application cycle beginning with the 2018-2019 academic year; Spouses may now apply any time after 1 January for the upcoming academic year.
