ECC is proud to be a Home Base Iowa school.

The Ellsworth College Foundation and Trustees provide more than $800,000 in scholarships for students at ECC. The Greg Hodak Scholarship is specifically for veterans; it can be coupled with other scholarships to offset costs for tuition and fees.  Within the Iowa Falls community there is also the American Legion Scholarship and the Grace Hibner Scholarship (medical field) that are awarded to ECC students with a military background. Contact the ECC Foundation Office for more information.

Greg Hodak Scholarship (please include “Greg Hodak” in the notes section)


ECC provides flexible payment arrangements for our veteran students and military family members. You can charge books and supplies in ECC’s Bookstore with proper verification of military status. The Business Office works with the Bookstore to provide approval for charging books to ensure our veterans have their books before classes start to ensure academic success. We work to ensure undue costs (late fees or other costs) are not incurred if the military funding is delayed.

Contact our Veterans benefit coordinator, Megan Dannen.

Study Space & Support Group

Ellsworth’s Osgood Library has several designated spaces for our veteran students to meet. This space provides access to computers to sign up for benefits or work on class assignments or to have a quiet place on campus to study or collaborate with others. ECC has the structure put together to accommodate a veterans services support group.

Contact our Veterans Academic Coordinator, Wanda Koehrsen.
