Whether you’re a college-bound high school student or already attending a college or university, Army ROTC has scholarships available. 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
  • $10,000 per year for Room and board
  • $1,200 per year for books and supplies
  • $420 stipend per academic month for living expenses

Non-scholarship Cadets in ROTC advanced courses (3rd and 4th year) also qualify.

Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP)

“Simultaneous” means students who are at the same time:

  • full-time college students (sophomore, junior, senior, or grad students)
  • currently serving (or willing to enlist) in the USAR or ARNG
  • enrolled in Army ROTC

Upon college graduation, you will be commissioned as an officer in the Army, and have the option of either serving full-time on Active Duty, or part-time in the Army Reserves or Army National Guard. 

  • Drill pay ($320.12)
  • ROTC stipend ($420)
  • GI Bill Kicker ($350)
  • Officer training in your unit
  • Non-deployable status—your college education won’t be interrupted by deployment

*ALL Scholarships and Incentives are contingent upon an applicant being medically qualified, physically fit, and in attendance for all ROTC functions*
