Spouses of active duty service members can receive scholarships to attend North Country Community College under a special Department of Defense program.
The college received notification in December that it has been approved as a provider of the My Career Advancement Account (MyCAA) Scholarship, which provides up to $4,000 of tuition assistance to eligible military spouses.
The scholarship is designed to assist military spouses in pursuing licenses, certificates, certifications or associate degrees in high-demand, high-growth portable career fields and occupations. At North Country Community College, military spouses can use the scholarship to pursue an associate’s degree or certificate in more than 20 fields, including Practical Nursing, Radiology, Massage Therapy, Business, Wilderness Recreation, Human Services and Environmental Science.
The MyCAA Scholarship Program is open to 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 have the ability to request tuition assistance while their military sponsor is on Title 10 military orders. Spouses married to members of the National Guard and reserves in these same pay grades are eligible.
