Valley Forge Military College Scholarship Program Deadline Approaching, Says Cutler
1/19/2016
HARRISBURG – State Rep. Bryan Cutler (R-Peach Bottom) has announced the availability of a single annual scholarship to Valley Forge Military College for a student residing in the 100th District. The minimum annual award is $12,000 for a high school GPA of 2.5, rising to an annual award of $17,500 for a high school GPA of 3.75.

“Because the selected student may claim the award for up to two years, the program is offering up to $35,000 to students who want to pursue a quality academic foundation while also shaping themselves as an ethically minded citizen,” Cutler said. “This is a great opportunity to make a special brand of higher education more attainable, and I encourage the students in the 100th District to apply.”

Students seeking participation in the Valley Forge Military College Legislative Appointment Initiative for the 2016-17 school year must have a minimum SAT score of 1,000 or a 20 on the ACT and an overall grade point average of 2.5. Extracurricular activities, community service and leadership will also be considered.

Interested students must obtain an application through Cutler’s district office, located at 33G Friendly Drive in Quarryville, by calling (717) 284-1965. Applicants are cautioned not to submit their application through the college’s website if they are seeking consideration for this scholarship. The deadline for students to apply to Cutler’s office is Feb. 11.

All candidates who meet the requirements will be considered by a selection committee. The scholarship is funded by the college and no state allocations are made to the program. Any student is eligible for the scholarship, not just those with previous affiliation with the armed forces.

More information about the college is available at vfmac.edu. Candidates who have questions about the program, the college or the completion of the application should contact Siobhán Cusumano at the Valley Forge Military College by calling (610) 989-1310.
