Active Duty: A person who is active duty is in the military full time. They work for the military full time, may live on a military base, and can be deployed at any time. Persons in the Reserve or National Guard are not full-time active duty military personnel, although they can be deployed at any time should the need arise.

Reserve/Guard: A military reserve, reserve formation, or simply reserve, is a group of military personnel or units which are initially not committed to a battle by their commander so that they are available to address unforeseen situations or exploit suddenly developing opportunities.

The National Guard of the United States, part of the reserve components of the United States Armed Forces, is a reserve military force, composed of National Guard military members or units of each state.

Veterans: A veteran is a person who has had long service or experience in a particular occupation or field. This page refers to military veterans, i.e., a person who has served or is serving in the armed forces.

Spouse: A person whose spouse (wife or husband) is a member of the nation’s armed forces. The scholarships listed here are for the spouse of active duty military or veterans, who wish to pursue a higher education. These scholarships do not require that the spouse be the veterans dependent.

Dependents/ROTCMilitary dependents are the spouse(s), children, and possibly other familial relationship categories of a sponsoring military member for purposes of pay as well as special benefits, privileges and rights. 

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. Along with great leadership training, ROTC can pay for your college tuition.

Miscellaneous: This Miscellaneous category is filled with a wide variety of scholarships that “could” be used to further your education even without receiving GI bill benefits here at UCA.
