College Scholarships for Military Children & Spouses
Hundreds of military scholarships exist to help those that qualify pay for school!
Many students don't realize that their parents' jobs could impact their scholarship search! This especially holds true for children of military service members. Scholarship providers look to help pay for school, perhaps in part, to thank service members for all they do for the country. Military children and military spouses uniquely qualify for many scholarships. There are also scholarship directory pages specific to college scholarships for military veterans and college scholarships for disabled military veterans.

Additional Help for Active Duty Service Members and Veterans

Active duty and veteran military service members can get more than just scholarships to help support their higher education experience. A variety of programs and organizations exist to help these men and women transition into the college classroom. One such program is the Warrior-Scholar Program. This program works with the country’s top colleges and universities to provide one- and two-week bootcamps for veterans and service members transitioning to college campuses. Through lectures, workshops, and one-on-one mentoring, incoming college students are taught the skills they need to thrive in the classroom and to acclimate to the college campus setting. Much of the programming is run by student veterans who have successfully transitioned from service to college. Get more information about the Warrior-Scholar Program here.
