That’s a total award of $8,000!!* (see below for details)
Vermont Residents: You are eligible for a $500 scholarship towards the cost of FLC! Contact us for further information.
Norwich University is a non-profit organization. Our programs are priced to cover actual expenses. Therefore, we offer limited scholarships or financial aid.
If you really want to attend FLC, here are some suggestions that have worked for other participants, families, units and high schools:
- Ask school officials to fund part or all of the tuition
- Contact local organizations such as the American Legion
- Conduct fundraisers with fellow students and families
- Ask your unit commander to contact area business leaders
- Earn the money with a part-time job
Begin your application online:
*In order to remain eligible for the scholarship, students must be enrolled full-time and maintain satisfactory progress toward their degree as defined in the Norwich University catalog. This scholarship may be added to other academic merit scholarships received.
FLC Scholars who are also eligible to receive the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) Scholarships from Norwich University will receive the CAP leadership scholarship which has a greater value. The student does not retain both awards.
Students may not receive more than one 4-year FLC award. 1 or 2 years of camp attendance will yield one 4-year scholarship at $2,000 per year.
