May is Military Appreciation Month. During this month, Military Spouse Appreciation Day is recognized the Friday before Mother’s Day, so what better time to talk about some of the issues currently facing military spouses.

Military spouse employment, for a variety of reasons, is a hot topic in and outside of the military community. The Major Group has partnered with several organizations to help military spouses with their career pursuits, including the National Military Family Association (NFMA).

NMFA helps military families with many of their needs. Including partnering with The Major Group to promote quarterly military spouse scholarships for those looking to complete a career certification. And, as a bonus, the award will also cover the certification exam costs.

 

Why do I need a certification?

You’re probably asking yourself this question. You may already have a degree, or even years of experience. But if you are looking to move up in your career or start a new one, a nationally-recognized career certification can be the missing piece that puts your ahead of your peers and fellow job-seekers.

Professional certifications can increase earning potential, improve advancement opportunities, and add skills to your resume. They can be completed in about six months, which, for military spouses, can be the perfect time-frame to complete while your spouse is on deployment, extended TDY, or short PCS.

 

Who can apply?

Here’s the best part about the quarterly scholarship from The Major Group — it’s open to ALL military spouses! Active duty, national guard, reserve, officer, enlisted, male, female, young, old — everyone! Even if you’ve already used your MyCAA funding, you are eligible for this scholarship. If you have any questions about your military spouse scholarship eligibility, we’re here to help!

Here are some additional reasons to get a hustle on this application:

  • Filling out this application gives you a break from all the other things on your to-do list.
  • You’ll learn about new employment resources when you register with our partner organizations.
  • You’ve worked hard to get where you are, and this is a great opportunity to continue your education.
  • There’s absolutely nothing to lose!

 

How do I apply?

It’s easy — visit our military spouse scholarship application page.  You must fill out the form and register with the partner organizations listed (this will be verified).

 

So, what are you waiting for?

The programs for which this scholarship can be applied are 100% online and very flexible. They are perfect for military spouses, even those currently preparing for a PCS. Education and job prospects are definitely on your mind, even among the boxes, which is why this scholarship is perfectly timed. The application deadline is June 5th, which means you can get it in well before you set off on the road. Apply Here!
