Valley Forge Military Academy is proud to announce the Cory Stein Memorial Scholarship and Academy Grant Program, available for the 2020-2021 academic year to boarding students new to VFMA entering 9th, 10th or 11th grade who are American Citizens.

In addition to filling out and submitting this application, applicants must submit an application to attend Valley Forge Military Academy and an application for financial need.

The award of these scholarships and grants are competitive and renewable upon attainment of required criteria. The award supports the efforts of academically able students who are good citizens, who seek leadership roles in their communities and the world, and who demonstrate financial need.

Criteria for the Cory Stein Memorial Scholarships and Academy Grant Program at VFMA:

Once accepted as a Cory Stein Scholar, the cadet shall enter into a written contract to be signed by the cadet, the adult member responsible for the cadet, and VFMA which shall provide, as follows:

1. Following the initial semester attended by the recipient, the Grant and Scholarship shall be subject to termination unless the cadet maintains a cumulative grade point average not less than 2.8 or at least an 85% average. This requirement shall apply cumulatively including the initial semester and second semester and thereafter.

2. The Grant and Scholarship shall be subject to termination if the cadet has been found guilty of an infraction of the VFMA Code of Cadet Conduct resulting in dismissal from The Academy.

3If the cadet complies with numbers 1 & 2, the VFMA Academy Grant and Cory Stein Memorial Scholarship will be renewed one semester at a time through the cadet’s graduation following successful completion of 12th grade.

4. Renewal shall be subject to a prior review and approval of updated documents demonstrating ongoing financial need at the same level, with possible adjustment if financial need then becomes less based upon improved financial circumstances.

The grant and scholarship supports the efforts of academically able students who are good citizens and who seek leadership roles in their communities and the world.

As the final piece of the Application process, you will be required to have a Zoom or Skype call with our committee.  We will get in contact with you to schedule that meeting once all documents are completed.
