Scholarships and Benefits
Army ROTC offers competitive four-, three-, and two-year scholarships of full tuition and fees, $1,200 for books, and a stipend (paycheck) between $300 to $500 per month.
Scholarships are awarded based on a student’s merit and grades, not financial need, and are offered in the following forms:
- Two-, three-, and four-year scholarship options based on the time remaining to complete your degree
- Full-tuition scholarships
- Options for room and board in place of tuition, if qualified
- Additional allowances for books and fees
Non-scholarship contracted cadets receive a subsistence allowance of up to $500 a month.
Non-scholarship and some types of scholarship cadets may also become part of Army Reserve or Army National Guard units while in ROTC to receive additional benefits.
Program requirements include a 28-day summer training course between the junior and senior years.
Opportunities exist for other specialized summer training such as airborne school, air assault school, internships with active duty Army units, or internships with federal government agencies.
