Army ROTC

Army ROTC is an elective curriculum you take along with your required college classes. It prepares you with the tools, training and experiences that will help you succeed in any competitive environment. You will have a normal college student experience like everyone else on campus, but when you graduate, you will be an Officer in the Army.

Army ROTC is one of the Nation’s top leadership programs, with a wide range of benefits. Through Army ROTC you can:

  • Train to become a leader and manager
  • Gain experience you can’t find anywhere else
  • Gain the respect of your peers and future employers
  • Get help with your college tuition with an Army ROTC Scholarship

SCHOLARSHIPS

Whether you’re a college-bound high school student or already attending a college or university, Army ROTC has scholarships available. Scholarships are awarded based on a student’s merit and grades, not financial need.

Army ROTC scholarships consist of:

  • Two-, three- and four-year scholarship options based on the time remaining to complete your degree
  • Full tuition scholarships
  • The option for room and board in lace of tuition, if you should qualify
  • Additional allowances for books and fees

Living Expenses

  • Army ROTC scholarships also provide a $420 per month living allowance for each school year. Non-scholarship Cadets in ROTC advanced courses (3rd and 4th year) also receive this allowance.

ROTC scholarships are granted based on a student’s grades, not their financial situation. Explore available scholarships below.

Deadlines: Apply by November 15
Four-year scholarship applications must be requested between November 1 – March 1
once Cadets are on campus, two-year and three-year scholarships become available.
