Spouse Scholarships + Careers

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.

Abeni has been married to her high school sweetheart, an Army Special Forces Soldier, for 13 years. They are currently living apart so she can finish school. She will graduate in Spring 2019 from George Mason University with a Master’s in Special Education. Abeni has four courses left, each costing about $2,000. In Abeni’s words, “I’m so grateful for this scholarship. I’m almost finished, and I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.”

I’m so grateful for this scholarship. I’m almost finished, and I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.

STEM Careers

Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers are among the fastest growing in the U.S., according to the Department of Labor. Given their mobile lifestyles, military spouses should consider careers in these often high-demand, financially-stable, portable professions – they may alleviate the stops and starts of your career every move or transition.

Operation Purple Camp

Eastern 4-H Center is owned and operated by NC State University. The Center's staff is dedicated to providing every camper an opportunity to feel accepted, valued, and cared about as a member of the summer camp community. Creating friendships and a sense of safety are as important to us as the activities we teach. Our vision is to establish an enjoyable and exciting summer camp program that contributes to the development of each camper's character, along with the development of important life skills. Our summer camp experience enables campers to learn these skills while doing a variety of traditional summer camp activities, such as kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing, learning about nature, team challenge course, sports and games, arts and crafts, and archery. Eastern 4-H Center is also outfitted with modern recreational facilities and lodgings to make campers feel comfortable during their stay. We hope your camper will join us for a fun filled week.
