National Board ECP Awardees

National Winners of the Early Commissioning Program Ike Skelton Scholarship may choose which one of the four Military Junior Colleges they would like to use their scholarship to attend.

Financially, VFMC is a great choice because the school grants a room and board scholarship to all students that contract with an Ike Skelton scholarship. That means that you will be able to pocket most, if not all, of your $420 per month stipend, $1200 per year book allowance and approximately $300 per month drill pay as a college student.

VFMC is also located in one of the premier locations in the country to go to school with at least 13 colleges and universities also located in the surrounding area in a suburban region just 15 miles west of Philadelphia.

Our cadets have a record of excellence at VFMC. This year one of our MS IV cadets received the coveted RECONDO badge at Advanced camp, and one of our MS III cadets received Honor Grad from Basic Camp while at Fort Knox summer training. This summer, we also had two cadets complete Air Assault School and four cadets earned their Airborne wings. Upon graduation, many of our cadets go on to complete their Bachelor’s degree at top tier universities to include: Cornell, Columbia, William and Mary, Baylor, Syracuse, Villanova, Penn State, Norwich, Ohio State, Pitt, and many others.
