Spouse Education Assistance Program

Spring scholarship checks were mailed to schools on November 30.

The Spouse Education Assistance Program is a need-based scholarship program established to assist Spouses of Army Soldiers in obtaining an undergraduate degree. Applicants may receive assistance for up to four academic years of full-time study or eight academic years of part-time study, but must re-apply each year. Spouses may apply year-round. There is not a deadline date to apply.

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 range from $500 to $2,200.
