Are you looking for a way to further your education? Do you need financial assistance in order to make your way through college? The U.S. Army has several scholarship opportunities to help you further your education without taking on too much of a financial burden.
When it comes to Army scholarships, most people immediately think about the ROTC program. No matter if you are a high school student ready for college or a college student who is already enrolled, there may be an ROTC scholarship that is right up your alley.
Note: ROTC scholarships are awarded based on a student?s grades, not financial need.
The four forms of ROTC scholarships include:
– 2, 3, and 4 year scholarships
– Full tuition scholarships
– Room and board scholarships, in place of tuition, for those who qualify
– Allowances for books and other miscellaneous fees
Did you know that an ROTC scholarship can also provide a monthly living allowance? Your level of participation will decide how much you receive:
– 1st year, $300 per month
– 2nd year, $350 per month
– 3rd year, $450 per month
– 4th year, $500 per month
Chaplain Candidates Scholarship Partnership
Do you have the desire to enter the Army?s Chaplain Candidate program? Many seminaries and graduate schools offer scholarships and tuition waivers to qualified students who are part of this popular program.
Health Professionals Scholarship Program
The U.S. Army health-care team is among the best in the world. Not only do they offer the best treatment and technology, but they will pay 100% of tuition for graduate level degrees at any medical, psychology, veterinary, optometry, or dental program in the U.S. Along with this, many students will qualify for an additional $20,000 sign-on bonus.
Serving your country is one of the biggest benefits of enlisting in the U.S. Army. That being said, the educational benefits are not far behind!

Hi 1) Yes, you do.2) You apply for the AFROTC Nursing shcslarohip when you are in ROTC3) No, Everybody has to take the AFOQT. . . there’s study books etc. If you did okay on the SAT, you should be okay on the AFOQT too.4) When you are accepted to nursing school (typically between your sophmore and junior year of college, notifiy your AFROTC instructor. There’s a few (small few but still) who consider you a nursing student the first day of your freshman year. Most schools, you are “pre-nursing”.5) You can talk to your guidance counselor. Some are really up on ROTC and others, not so much. I would encourage you to apply for a regular AFROTC shcslarohip. Applications are due 1 Dec every year so you have some time to get in shape, etc
