Whether you’re a college-bound high school student or already attending a college or university, Army ROTC has several options for you to get your schooling paid for. Scholarships are offered through the ROTC program itself and are awarded based on the student’s merit and grades, not financial need.
High School Students
Limited 4 year scholarships available
To be eligible, students should have a GT score of 110 or higher and a cumulative GPA of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale, and must have scored at least 920 on the SAT or 19 on the ACT.
If you have already received a bachelor’s degree and want to be an Army Officer, you still may apply for an Army ROTC scholarship as a way to fund a 2-year graduate degree. This scholarship is available based on academic merit and applies only if you have not already received an Army ROTC scholarship or are not currently receiving funds from an Army ROTC scholarship.
Limited two and three year scholarships available
To be eligible, students should have a GT score of 110 or higher and a cumulative GPA of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale
See Mrs. Doolittle or Nurse Pamphlet on scholarship information
Army National Guard/Reserve
Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP): remain active in the Army National Guard or Army Reserve while enrolled in college and Army ROTC. As a full-time student enrolled in Army ROTC, you receive on-the-job leadership training, get paid for your service and receive credit for time served.

Green to Gold Program: this path is for Soldiers currently on Active Duty who wish to enroll in Army ROTC now. There are several Green to Gold Program options available:
- Scholarship option: Soldiers may apply for an Army ROTC scholarship while still on Active Duty. Once accepted to college and enrolled in Army ROTC, you no longer will be considered an Active Duty Soldier. The type of scholarship you receive is based on the number of terms required to complete your degree.
- Active Duty Option: A limited number of applicants each year can remain on Active Duty once accepted to college and Army ROTC.This option is limited to those with two years remaining toward their college degree.
- Non-Scholarship Option: Enroll in college and ROTC without applying for or receiving an Army ROTC scholarship. If eligible, you can still receive GI Bill/Army College Fund benefits, regardless of your academic performance.
