Providing Career Solutions for Military Spouses

Career Challenges for Military Spouses

Emerging Technologies Institute is honored to be an approved online educator for the MyCAA Scholarship. As such, we aim to help military spouses realize their goals through education, career advancement and overall success. We at ETI recognize the challenges and sacrifices of not only those who serve, but military spouses as well.
In report published by the Institute for Veterans and Military Families, it was stated, “the majority of Armed Forces spouses believe that the military lifestyle—including frequent moves, deployments, living in areas with poor local labor market conditions, and long hours that keep service members from assisting with parenting—has negatively affected their employment opportunities.”

What is The My Career Advancement Account (MyCAA) Scholarship?

The My Career Advancement Account (MyCAA) scholarship is a workforce development program that provides up to $4,000 of financial assistance to eligible military spouses who are pursuing a license, certification or Associate’s degree in a portable career field and occupation.

Who qualifies for MyCAA?

Military spouses of active-duty Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine, or National Guard/ARG service members in paygrades E1-E5, O1-O2, and W1-W2.

What will this scholarship pay for?

The MyCAA scholarship pays tuition costs for education and training courses and examinations leading to an associate degree (excluding associate degrees in general studies, liberal arts and interdisciplinary studies that do not have a concentration). This scholarship also covers the costs for obtaining a license, certificate or certification at an accredited college, university or technical school in the United States or approved testing organization that expands employment or portable career opportunities for military spouses.

How to establish an account with the MyCAA scholarship?

Additionally, Online Registration is available.
