  Military Educational Benefits & Programs
ROTC Scholarship
ROTC scholarships are awarded to hundreds of students each year at college campuses across the United States. These scholarships are awarded strictly on merit – to the most outstanding students who apply, regardless of their family’s financial status. ROTC scholarships vary based on the branch of service and the type and/or length of the scholarship. ROTC scholarships provide money for college tuition, educational fees, books, and in some cases a monthly allowance. Scholarship recipients participate in summer training during their enrollment in college and must fulfill their military obligation, either active duty or reserve service, after graduation.

Military Service Academies Scholarships
The U.S. Military Service Academies offer young men and women the opportunity to earn a college degree (Bachelor of Science Degree) and commission as an officer for the U.S. Armed Forces.
