Back to School for The Military Wife

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Martinsburg Institute. All opinions are 100% mine.

For so long I have dreamed of getting an education and contributing to my family financially. Thankfully, there are great resources out there to help military spouses get certified for a career. Us military families are not rich so when MyCAA(Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts)  came along, many spouses jumped at it. For anyone who doesn't know MyCAA is a grant to military spouses who want to go back to school. They provide up to $4,000 for free tuition assistance! This program is only open to spouses of lower ranking military. You can check the website for exact qualifications. The MyCAA program has re-opened after working out the bugs and is now even easier for you to meet your career goals.

One school, which has been helping military spouses, veterans, and military members themselves to further their education since 2004, is the Martinsburg Institute. One thing that is great about this school is that they are EXTREMELY military friendly and have many great programs to check out. The best thing about this school is that they are already MyCAA approved. The hardest thing I have found with MyCAA is that the schools I was interested in were not yet approved by MyCAA so the fact that this school is...makes life a lot easier.

This is so great for military spouses because you can not only get financial assistance through MyCAA but in addition you can go to school online. Going to school online is the only option for me right now as my kids are little and daycare is expensive. For me, I think I would choose the Financial Management program because I am a huge Math Geek:)

So if you're looking to use your MyCAA money make sure you check out the Martinsburg Institute to see if there is a program for you.
