CMA participants’, who enroll at DeVry from May 2019 to January 2020,
may sponsor one designated dependent to receive the scholarship.
CMA participants and their family member can pursue an undergraduate
certificate, associate degree or bachelor’s degree at one of DeVry

“Participants in our Warrior Transition Network have dedicated
themselves to serving others, so too have their families. Military
spouses and children make untold sacrifices, often in areas of
employment and education,” said Chaunté Myers, CEO of Centurion Military
Alliance. “While service members do receive certain benefits, their
dependents do not. With DeVry’s Advance 500 scholarship, we can help
provide an opportunity for a military family member to earn a degree
without any financial burden.”
CMA partnered with DeVry University for the Advance 500 Scholarship
because of the university’s long history of helping current and former
members of the U.S. military reach their higher education goals.
“From training Army Air Corps instructors on electronic devices in the
1940s to being one of the first schools approved to accept the original
G.I. Bill® following WWII, DeVry has been educating and
supporting America’s military personnel and the veteran community for
decades,” said James Bartholomew, president and CEO of DeVry University.
“Which is why I am proud to join forces with the CMA and give back to
our veteran community and their families by offering 500 tuition-free
scholarships to the dependents of its veteran service organization
