Leadership, Extracurricular, and Athletic Activities
Our scholarship winners are usually well-rounded, active students with good grades and above average potential. More than half of them have held an office either in one of their classes or the student body. Most are National Honor Society members, and a few are editors of school publications. Many are members of clubs (at school, church, or private organizations), and others are varsity letter winners and varsity team captains. As you can see, we look for achievers with broad interests, leadership ability, and a demonstrated willingness to take on challenges and overcome them.
The Army ROTC awards scholarships based on applicant merit, not on financial need. 4-year, 3-year, 2.5-year and 2-year scholarships are available to qualified students.
Enlisted Soldiers on Active Duty

The Army ROTC Green to Gold Scholarship Program provides selected enlisted Soldiers on Active Duty an opportunity to complete their baccalaureate degree and obtain a commission through participating in ROTC.
