One of the most stressful complications for college students is finding the money to pay for the
myriad of college-related expenses. The Army offers many scholarship options for those looking to
gain tuition or housing assistance while persuing their degree as a full time student. ROTC offers
two, three and four-four scholarships, based on individual cadets' circumstance. The Army ROTC
scholarship entitles its recipients to full-tuition assistance or room-and-board reimbursement, as
well as a textbook/fee allowance and a monthly stipend to cover the student’s living expenses.
The monthly stipend increases each academic year as follows:
Ease the Strain of Paying for College
Year 1: $300/month Year 2: $350/month Year 3: $450/month Year 4: $500/month
To be eligible to compete for an ROTC scholarship, students must be able to pass an APFT, have at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA, pass a DoDMERB physical, be a U.S. citizen and of good moral character.
