Free Tuition for Veteran Spouses


The Arizona Coalition for Military Families proudly supports the efforts of the Arizona Board of Regents to help connect the spouses of veterans with free tuition to Arizona’s universities and participating community colleges.

This initiative is specially designed for the spouses of honorably discharged veterans who reside in Arizona. The award covers up to the full cost of in-state tuition and mandatory fees, after accounting for any other financial aid. This means that the financial burden of pursuing higher education can be significantly reduced, allowing you to focus on your academic, career, and personal growth.

To be eligible for this remarkable opportunity, applicants must:

  • Be an Arizona Resident: You need to be, and continue to be, a resident of Arizona while receiving the scholarship.
  • Qualify for In-State Tuition: Please refer to the specific residency requirements at Arizona State University (ASU), Northern Arizona University (NAU), and the University of Arizona (UA).
  • Be a spouse of an honorably discharged U.S. Armed Forces veteran
  • Be Admitted and Enrolled at ASU, NAU, the University of Arizona, or a participating community college.
  • Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
  • Allow the release of information necessary to determine continued eligibility for the scholarship.
