Scholarships and Incentives

Army ROTC can help pay for your tuition and/or room and board through a variety of financial opportunities including Illinois State Scholarships, Federal Scholarships, Army National Guard or Army Reserve benefits, and foreign language incentives.

Living expenses

Federal Army ROTC scholarships also provide a monthly living allowance (stipend) to contracted cadets during the school year. The stipend is $420 per month. This stipend (living allowance) is also provided to all contracted non-scholarship Cadets enrolled in the Army ROTC.

Army Schools and Additional Training

ROTC cadets also receive opportunities to attend Army schools such as Airborne, Air Assault, Northern Warfare, and Sapper and participate in additional training such as OPFOR (Opposing Force) for Cadet Summer Training at Ft Knox. These are unique opportunities awarded to students based upon merit and are contingent upon slots assigned to the ROTC program.
