Many students don't realize that their spouse and/or parents' jobs could impact their scholarship search! This especially holds true for children and spouses of military service members.
College Scholarships for Military Children & Spouses
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.

For Spouses, Children of Those Who Served and Made the Ultimate Sacrifice

We offer our sincere condolences and would like to thank you for his/her service. In addition to Fastweb.com, we invite you to visit TAPS.org (Tragedy Assistance Program For Survivors). TAPS offers a scholarship finder specific to the children and spouses of fallen service members.
