Scholarships

ROTC Color Guard

In addition to world-class leadership, Army ROTC also offers generous scholarships to qualified students.

These scholarships are based solely on the student's merits - not financial needs. They can defray the full cost of tuition and provide additional tax-free allowances for books and necessary fees.

Additionally, those on Army ROTC scholarship are eligible to receive a tax-free stipend of up to $500 per month - for up to 10 months a year -- to defray living expenses. In those instances in which the cost of room and board exceeds tuition expenses, scholarship winners may elect to have the cost of their room and board paid in lieu of their tuition.
