ROTC Scholarships

Whether you’re a college-bound high school student or already attending a college or university, Army ROTC provides students with the chance to compete for scholarships. 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 place of tuition, if you should qualify
  • Additional allowances for books and fees

Living Expenses

Army ROTC scholarships also provide monthly living allowances for each school year. You can earn certain amounts depending on your level in the Army ROTC curriculum:

1st year, $300 per month

2nd year, $350 per month

3rd year, $450 per month

4th year, $500 per month

This allowance is also available to all non-scholarship Cadets contracted in the Army ROTC Advanced Course.

All scholarships applicants must understand that branching Active Duty is not guaranteed. Assignments are based on the needs of the Army. Scholarship cadets may be branched into the U.S. Army Reserve or Army National Guard.
