Military Science (Army ROTC)


Army ROTC awards hundreds of scholarships, available at over 600 schools. Army ROTC scholarships pay full tuition and required fees. They're awarded on merit -- like academic achievements, extracurricular activities, and personal interviews. Scholarship winners receive a stipend ($300 freshman, $350 sophomore, $450 junior, $500 senior) for each academic month, plus an allowance for books and other educational items. If you're a non-scholarship student, you can still receive the stipend as a contracted Cadet. If you're selected to receive a scholarship, you will have a commitment to the Army after completing the program. You can fulfill the commitment by either serving as an officer part time in the Army National Guard, Army Reserve, or full time on active duty.
