Education Benefits for Spouses—My Career Advancement Account (MyCAA)

Military spouses may receive education benefits through the MyCAA program when pursuing approved degree programs, licenses or credentials.


The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (The Yellow Ribbon Program) is a provision of the Post9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows institutions of higher learning (degree granting institutions) in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in–state undergraduate tuition rate. The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses and VA will match the same amount as the institution. Institutions that voluntarily enter into a Yellow Ribbon Agreement with VA choose the amount of tuition and fees that will be contributed. VA will match that amount and issue payment directly to the institutions. Most times this is done during the summer term when VA funding has reached its maximum during the year.

Application:Military services students with military education assistance funding are evaluated for eligibility during financial aid appointments.

Award:The grant will be awarded up to 50% of the Chapter 33 tuition payment.


The Blue Ribbon Grant is designed to recognize and assist veterans, active–duty military personnel, spouse and dependents by providing additional grant funds upon the exhaustion or expiration of military education benefits to support the individual to enhance their educational benefits.

Eligibility:American National University provides a grant of up to 35% of the total amount that is paid toward the direct cost of education on behalf of an individual qualified by the Veterans Administration under Chapter 30, 31, 33, 35, 1606, Military Tuition Assistance or State National Guard. (MYCAA recipients are not eligible)

Application:See the Financial Aid Office staff for an application

Award:Eligible students may accumulate up to a maximum of $18,000 to extend or complete their programs of study, or assist a current spouse or qualified dependent at American National University. Once earned the accumulated grant amount may be utilized to pay tuition and fees at American National University in any academic program or degree level. The grant can be used in any program or degree level and the grant funds must be used within 10 years of the last day of the term the Blue Ribbon Grant was earned.

The military student earning the grant may elect to transfer the earned grant to a current spouse or qualified dependent under the age of 30. In the event of such transfer, the grant will be considered earned, transferable, and payable toward the transferee spouse or qualified dependent’s account following the completion of any term in which the military student’s benefits are paid toward the transferor’s tuition and fees.
