Army ROTC Scholarships

Army Reserve Officer Training Corps enables students to enroll in elective leadership and military courses at colleges and universities in addition to their required courses. Scholarships are awarded based on a student’s merit and grades, not financial need.

Scholarships consist of:

  • Two-, three-, and four-year scholarship options based on the time remaining to complete the degree
  • Full-tuition scholarships
  • The option for room and board in place of tuition (for those who qualify)
  • Additional allowances for books and fees

Scholarships also provide monthly living allowances for each school year. Cadets can earn certain amounts depending on their level in the Army ROTC.

Apply for Scholarships from ROTC

In order to apply for an Army ROTC scholarship, students first will need to create a MY GOARMY account.

Once an account is created, the student will be sent to the MY GOARMY login page. Once they can successfully login to MY GOARMY, they can use the newly created account information to login to the scholarship application site.

In 5 paragraphs or less, you should share what you saw (feel free to link to it if its online), how it made you feel, the call-to-action, and ultimately explain why a certain marketing campaign was the best use of content marketing that you have ever seen for the purposes of achieving business goals (typically increasing revenue and profits).
