United States of America, Nov 09, 2011 -- Buffalo, NY, November 09, 2011 - In
advance of Veteran's Day this week, Bryant & Stratton College Online wants to
recognize the sacrifices of military spouses and announced today that spouses of
National Guard and Reserves service members are now eligible for the Salute to
Spouses Scholarship program. The scholarship program offers military spouses an
opportunity to advance their education and become more competitive in the modern
job market. Salute to Spouses scholarships are for online degree programs at Bryant
& Stratton College, which is regionally accredited by the Middle States Commission
on Higher Education. To date, Bryant & Stratton College Online has awarded
scholarships worth up to $324,000 to spouses of veterans and active duty military
personnel.

"Veterans of all branches of service and their families deserve our thanks all year
round, but especially on Veteran's Day. At Bryant & Stratton College Online we are
proud to support our military students, as well as their families by connecting them to
opportunities and resources that will help them further their careers. By opening up
the Salute to Spouses Scholarship to include National Guard and Reserves spouses,
we are increasing access to the education they need to be more competitive in the
modern job market," said Ed Dennis, Military Relations Manager at Bryant &
Stratton College Online.

Bryant & Stratton College Online launched the Salute to Spouses Scholarship
program in March 2010. Salute to Spouses awards eligible military spouses
scholarships up to $600 (for part-time students) or $1,200 (for full-time students) per
semester for online degree programs offered by Bryant & Stratton College. The
maximum scholarship award a recipient can receive is $6,000. All Salute to Spouses
Scholarship recipients must meet Bryant & Stratton College scholarship guidelines to
receive the full award.

As a complement to the Salute to Spouses Scholarship, Bryant & Stratton College
Online launched SalutetoSpouses.com in April 2011. The site features personal
stories, advice, tools, tips and opportunities for community discussion. The content
on SalutetoSpouses.com is created and edited by military spouses and serves as a


                                                                          Page 1 of 3
resource for education and career advancement information for military spouses.

"SalutetoSpouses.com is a great resource for all military spouses. Since all of the
contributors are military spouses, we know from firsthand experience that being
married to the military doesn't necessarily end when your troop stops actively
serving. For that reason our articles and stories are created for spouses of both active
duty personnel and veterans," said Allison Perkins, Editor at SalutetoSpouses.com.

In addition to the resources Bryant & Stratton College Online offers through Salute to
Spouses, it also provides support to active duty and military students. This year the
College formed Student Veterans of Bryant & Stratton College Online, a support
network for students who have served in the U.S. military, are currently serving, their
families and civilian supporters. The student-led group focuses on building upon
available resources that make success in the classroom and workplace more
attainable. Bryant & Stratton College Online also provides early enrollment options
for all veteran and military students and their family members to sign up for classes
before the general student body.
