The non-profit founded by MHA member company Corvias marked seven years of supporting military families through NMFA’s Spouse Scholarship Program by assisting 25 military spouses in obtaining career licensing and certifications. The program is designed to support military spouses who are impacted by frequent moves that require them to secure new credentials to maintain employment.
“The demands of the military life can acutely impact a spouse’s ability to carry on stable and secure employment in a wide variety of professions,” said Maria Montalvo, executive director of Corvias Foundation. “Frequent moves and spouse deployments can create significant challenges in maintaining one’s profession. We created this scholarship program to help address such issues and are grateful we can continue to support military spouses for the seventh year of this partnership.”
The 2022 recipients include spouses of military members of the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Space Force. “We are grateful for our continued partnership with Corvias Foundation,” said Besa Pinchotti, NMFA Executive Director and CEO. “With their support, these 25 military spouses can focus on their careers this year, without taking away from their family’s finances.”
Since the program’s inception in 2015, over 125 military spouses have received more than $140,000 in funding through the NMFA and Corvias Foundation partnership.
