National Military Family Association - Military Spouse Scholarship (ID 1242)
- Start Date:
- The mission of this scholarship program is to help prepare military spouses for meaningful employment and to better contribute to their family’s financial security.
The Joanne Holbrook Patton Military Spouse Scholarships are awarded to spouses of all Uniformed Services members:
•National Guard and Reserve
The scholarship funds may be used for tuition, fees, and school room and board for:
•GED or ESL
•In-class or on-line
•Full-time or part-time
A valid Military ID is a requirement to apply for our program. Scholarship selection is based on your completion of some survey questions which will help us advocate for education changes on your behalf, short-answer questions, and an essay question which will help us get to know you better.
- National Military Family Association scholarship funds are for military ID-carrying spouses only (active duty, retiree, Reserve, National Guard, and/or survivor). If you are selected for a scholarship, you must prove you are a military spouse. If not, the scholarship funds will be given to another spouse who can.
If selected for a scholarship, you must be able to enroll in your school or program and show proof to us by April 1, 2013. Otherwise, the funding will be given to another military spouse.
If you are no longer a military ID-carrying spouse, you must notify us immediately in writing. If you attempt to use scholarship funds after turning in your military ID cards without telling us, you may be required to repay us for any funds used after you leave the military. Funding is intended only for spouses with current military ID cards.
National Military Family Association members of the Board of Governors, Board of Advisors, Volunteers, employees, and their immediate families (spouses, parents, children, and their spouses or children) or those living in the same household, whether related or not, are not eligible to apply.
