Federal Scholarship

The ARMY ROTC Scholarship Program is designed to provide financial assistance for quality students who achieved academic excellence in high school and college.  To help you meet the cost of a college education, Army ROTC offers four-year, three-year, and two-year scholarships.  This program enables students to earn appointments as commissioned officers in the United States Army.  

BENEFIT PACKAGE

The ROTC benefit package provides full-tuition and mandatory fees.  In addition to tuition and fees, the student receives a $1,200 book allowance per year (to be divided equally between semesters or quarters depending on the school’s system).

STIPEND

All scholarship cadets and cadets enrolled in the advanced course (juniors and seniors) are entitled a stipend (subsistence allowance) authorized by law.  The subsistence allowance typically begins on the first day of school.  The stipend for advanced course cadets will start the day the cadet starts the advanced course.

            Sophomore (MSII): $350*

            Junior (MSIII): $450**

            Senior (MSIV): $500**
