Active Duty Military Spouse Scholarship Program
Portable (Online) Career Solutions
Career Challenges for Military Spouses
Emerging Technologies Institute is honored to be an approved online educator for the MyCAA Scholarship. As such, we aim to help active duty military spouses realize their goals through education, career advancement and overall success. We at ETI recognize the challenges and sacrifices of not only those who serve, but military spouses as well.
In report published by the Institute for Veterans and Military Families, it was stated, “the majority of Armed Forces spouses believe that the military lifestyle—including frequent moves, deployments, living in areas with poor local labor market conditions, and long hours that keep service members from assisting with parenting—has negatively affected their employment opportunities.”
