Army ROTC scholarships pay for tuition and academic fees, up to a total of $68,000 for four years. Scholarship winners also receive an annual book allowance, as well as a stipend worth up to $4,000 per academic year. Each year hundreds of students attending colleges nationwide receive ROTC scholarships. ROTC awards them to students studying science, engineering, nursing, and business, as well as a variety of other majors.

 Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP):

The Simultaneous Membership Program allows you to attend Army ROTC and serve in the U.S. Army Reserve or Army National Guard at the same time. It gives you an opportunity for additional training and experience. Cadets serve as Officer trainees in the Reserve or National Guard while completing college. You can earn Reserve/Guard pay and benefits in addition to your Army ROTC allowances.
