The Army ROTC program provides scholarships and other financial incentives for college students to receive officers' commissions in the US Army, the Army National Guard, or the Army Reserve when they graduate with a degree in their chosen college majors.

  Army ROTC

While in school you will take ROTC courses for a few hours a week. ROTC courses fulfill elective requirements at most colleges. You can try ROTC for up to two years without making any commitment to join the Army. After graduating with your officer's commission, you will serve in either the active Army, the Army National Guard, or the Army Reserve or a combination for a total of eight years.

About 40,000 students participate each year at hundreds of colleges and universities nationwide. More than 20 percent of all current ROTC cadets are women.

Army ROTC training teaches leadership and management skills that will serve you well during your college career and beyond. ROTC builds confidence and teaches the planning and time-management skills needed to succeed in college and the leadership, management, and motivational skills critical to success in life. Army ROTC provides a competitive edge that will be of value in either a military or civilian career.

Among other benefits, Army ROTC offers competitive merit-based scholarships that can help pay tuition and on-campus educational expenses, as well as a personal allowance of up to $1,500 per academic year. Many of these scholarships are specifically targeted to students pursuing degrees in engineering, nursing, the physical sciences, or other technical programs.
