Are you eligible for the MyCAA Scholarship?

Spouses of service members on active duty in pay grades E-1 to E-5, W-1 to W-2, and O-1 to O-2 who have successfully completed high school and can request tuition assistance while their military sponsor is on Title 10 military orders are eligible. Spouses married to members of the National Guard and reserves in these same pay grades are eligible. The program does not include Coast Guard spouses.

How to Navigate Your MyCAA Benefit

Spouses of military services members can take advantage of up to $4,000 of MyCAA funds over 2 years to train for a career. As an approved MyCAA school, Fresno Pacific University equips you with job skills that can be transferred no matter where you are stationed.

While you are exploring the many career training programs offered through Fresno Pacific University and before you enroll in a course, it is important to visit the My Career Advancement Account Scholarship website and set up your account and spouse profile to determine your military eligibility. Military spouses enrolled in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) are eligible for a Department of Defense Self-Service (DS) logon account. All MyCAA scholarship participants are required to use their DS Logon to access their accounts.

Please keep in mind not to complete your course enrollment (pay for a course) until you have completed two steps:
  1. Worked through the MyCAA / military approval process. Eligible spouses will be allowed to create their career and training plan and request financial assistance at least 30 days prior to the course start dates.
  2. Contact CCI to ensure your eligibility to use your MyCAA scholarship funds. Your learner support rep will guide your through the application and financial assistance process.
