The Army ROTC Scholarship is awarded based on academic, athletic, and leadership merit, not financial need. However, all scholarships pay for tuition and mandatory fees.
Also, the scholarship provides an allowance for books as well as a monthly personal living allowance. You can also choose to have your scholarship applied towards room and board. Moreover, whether you are a college-bound high school student or already attending college, an Army ROTC scholarship is available for you.
Moving on, Army ROTC scholarships are divided into two categories: 4-year National Scholarships (for high school seniors) and 4, 3, and 2-year Campus-Based Scholarships (for incoming or current college students).
