Degree, Career + Business Scholarships

Are you looking to fund your education, career, or business goals? NMFA can help! We have long recognized the barriers military spouses face due to the mobile military lifestyle and we want to help you “get to the finish line.” A military spouse may need just one more class, a few more supervised clinical hours, or a re-licensure in a new state. NMFA’s scholarship program and partner scholarships bridge that gap and make the difference between unemployment and meaningful employment.
