Would you like to attend Fork Union Military Academy for free?  

Students who will enter grades 8, 9, or 10 in the fall of 2020, have a GPA equivalent to 3.0 or higher, and are first-time applicants to the fall program are eligible to compete for Fork Union Military Academy’s Trustee Scholarship. The Trustee Scholarship is a competitive merit-based award that covers full tuition, room and board, and uniforms for an incoming cadet to Fork Union Military Academy.

Affordability is a key factor for many families looking at private schools, and Fork Union Military Academy provides opportunities to as many students as possible.  Need-based financial aid and access scholarship funds are used by the school to assist as many young men as possible to enroll in our program. The Trustee Scholarship is different from other financial aid and scholarship programs offered by Fork Union, however.

The Trustee Scholarship is unique in that it is competitive and completely need blind.  This means that applicants for this scholarship do not need to fill out a financial aid application.  The finalists are selected based on the strength of their own achievements and abilities, as documented in their scholarship and admission applications.  Finalists in the scholarship competition are invited to campus for an interview with the Academy's scholarship committee before the final award is announced.

The deadline for applications for the Trustee Scholarship is January 17, 2020. 

For more information about the Trustee Scholarship opportunity, visit Fork Union's website at or call the Director of Admission's office at 434-842-4205.
