Army ROTC Scholarships

Scholarship Value: $200,000
Awards Available: 1000
Award Deadline: Feb 4, 2023

Scholarships and other monetary support are available when you join Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC), which allow you to focus on your education by relieving some of the financial pressure. You'll graduate with a respected and secure career path as an Army Officer, and with less debt for the school years your scholarship covers. You’re eligible to apply for a ROTC scholarship—which could get you up to 100% tuition coverage—if you’re a high school student enrolling in college, enrolled in college, or an active-duty enlisted Soldier.

ROTC scholarship can cover either tuition and fees, or room and board, and each comes with money for living and books

TUITION AND FEES ARE COVERED, ON TOP OF MONTHLY ALLOWANCES

  • The scholarships can be applied to any of the more than 1,000 participating schools
  • Your achievements and grades determine if you’ll be awarded a scholarship, not your financial need

ADDITIONAL MONEY FOR EXPENSES AND BOOKS

  • All scholarships include an extra $420 per month for the school year to use toward monthly expenses, like housing
  • All scholarships also allow $1,200 per year to spend toward books.

YOUR OBLIGATION

Your acceptance of the scholarship means a future service obligation of:

  • Eight years of Army service, with requirements for active duty in the Army, and/or serving in the Army Reserve or Army National Guard, depending on the scholarship
  • You may be eligible to serve part time in the Army Reserve or Army National Guard while pursuing a civilian career immediately after graduation

HOW TO APPLY

Get started on your scholarship application:

  1. Create an account on My GoArmy
  2. Upon creating an account, login to the Scholarship Application
  3. Locate and contact the Recruiting Operations Officer at the school you plan to attend—most of them have served before and understand the process you’re going through

STANDARD REQUIREMENTS FOR ROTC SCHOLARSHIPS

To be accepted for any ROTC Scholarship, you must meet these standards:

  • Be a U.S. citizen
  • Be at least 17, and under 31 in year of commissioning
  • Have a high school diploma or equivalent
  • Have a high school GPA of at least 2.50, unweighted if you're in high school while applying
  • Have taken the SAT or ACT
  • Take the current Army physical fitness test
  • Meet the physical weight and height requirements
  • Agree to accept a commission and serve in the Army, Army Reserve, or Army National Guard

APPLY WHILE IN HIGH SCHOOL

After you complete your junior year of high school, you can get a head start on your future by applying for the ROTC National Scholarship (a four-year scholarship), at a participating school.

APPLY WHILE IN COLLEGE

If you decide to join Army ROTC as a current college student, you’ll have access to Four-Year, Three-Year, or Two-Year Scholarships. Four-Year scholarships are most commonly applicable to current students who are on a five-year college plan, while Two-Year Scholarships are more common for those who attend certain participating two-year community colleges before transferring to a four-year university.
