WASHINGTON – The FINRA Investor Education Foundation's Military Spouse Fellowship Program has opened the application process for its class of 2012 military spouses.
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority Foundation Spouse Fellowship Program provides military spouse recipients with the education and training needed to earn the Accredited Financial Counselor® designation. Military spouses can apply to become a member of the 2012 class of fellows until March 31.
The Military Spouse Fellowship is administered in partnership with the Association for Financial Counseling and Planning Education® and the National Military Family Association. The program covers the costs associated with completing the AFC® training and testing for military spouses. More information is available at www.SaveAndInvest.org/MilitaryCenter

Spouse fellows have logged more than 306,000 hours helping military Families reach their financial goals, and 314 spouse fellows have graduated from the program. Accredited spouses serve the military community as financial counselors at family readiness and support centers, credit counseling and tax centers, financial aid offices and credit unions throughout the U.S. and abroad. These organizations are in need of well-trained specialists who understand the unique financial needs of military Families.
The Military Spouse Fellowship Program is open to current or surviving spouses of active-duty or retired Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, National Guard or Reserve service members, as well as spouses of members of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Commissioned Officer Corps.
