Federal Scholarship

Whether you're a college-bound high school student or already attending a college or university, Army ROTC has scholarships available. Scholarships are awarded based on a student's merit and grades, not financial need. Army ROTC scholarships are valuable in many ways:

  • Two, three, and four-year scholarship options based on the time remaining to complete your degree.
  • Scholarship amounts vary.
  • Additional allowances pay for books and fees.

Scholarship plans

The College four-year Scholarship is for college freshmen in their first year of a four-year (or five year for certain degrees) undergraduate plan. Contact the SIUE Army ROTC department for more information. The three-year scholarship is available for students already enrolled with three academic years remaining. The two-year scholarship is available for those who have two academic years of college remaining. To qualify, you must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen
  • Be between the ages of 17 and 26
  • Have a high school GPA of at least 2.50
  • Have a high school diploma or equivalent
  • Score minimum of 920 on the SAT or 19 on the ACT
  • Meet physical standards
  • Agree to accept a commission and serve in the Army on Active Duty or in a Reserve Component (U.S. Army Reserve or Army National Guard)

Apply online for an Army ROTC four-year Scholarship if still in high school.
