Military Spouse Education FoundationThe Military Spouse Education Foundation (MSEF) will launch in 2013 to establish a Military Service Grant for spouses who are excluded from the  Department of Defense's MyCAA program.

MSEF is founded on the belief that we are one community supporting one another regarding rank, branch, status, or educational status. After 11 years of war, our Post 9/11 era spouses deserve a program that compliments the challenges of military life rather than creates more obstacles.


Vision Statement: Through advocacy and support programming, we will provide spouses with the tools to accomplish their education goals.
 
Mission: To provide an education program for military spouses of all branches, ranks, and education levels built around the obstacles of military life.

Four Point Plan:

  1. Establish a "Volunteer Experience to College Credit" program between the American Council on Education, the military service branches, and military service organizations
  2. "PCS College Courses Program-" Course transferability
  3. Equip spouses with expanded skillsets with workshops on topics such as goal setting and balance
  4. Launch a Military Spouse Service Grant
