At Asher College, we take pride in supporting our nation’s veterans and military families. We are proud of our programs that are designed to support veterans, but we know those who serve are not the only ones who sacrifice. Asher recognizes the sacrifices made by the spouses and families that support those service members. Military spouses and families must often move frequently, and this can make it difficult for them to obtain the education they desire or maintain employment in a career they truly care about. Research shows that 85% of military spouses want or need to work. They also want to have fulfilling careers that can follow them as they move. Asher College is committed to serving these military spouses, and we facilitate scholarships specifically designed to assist military spouses in reaching their education and career goals. Read on to learn more about Asher College, and why we are a great choice for military spouses!
In recognition of the need to provide support and assistance to military spouses in reaching their education and career goals, the U.S. Department of Defense established a program called Spouse Education and Career Opportunities (SECO). SECO offers comprehensive coaching, information, tools and resources to support military spouse career exploration, education, training and licensing, employment readiness and career connections. The SECO program aims to increase military spouses’ education and career opportunities, and the support military spouses’ ability to expand their portfolios, receive equitable pay, increase their transferable skills and find the careers that matter to them. An important part of the SECO program is the My Career Advancement Account (MyCAA) scholarship, in which eligible military spouses may receive up to $4,000 of tuition assistance.
Asher College is proud to participate in the My Career Advancement Account (MyCAA) scholarship program for military spouses who qualify. The MyCAA scholarship, enables military spouses to receive tuition support in pursuing licenses, certifications, or the Associate’s degrees necessary to gain employment in high-demand, high-growth portable career fields and occupations.
